About IEEE

IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, is the world’s largest technical professional association. The trade group has grown by leaps and bounds since first assembling in 1884, adapting and evolving to keep pace with the technology. While early leadership came from the field of telegraphy, Thomas Edison’s influence led the group to embrace the power sector, and Alexander Graham Bell brought the telephone industry to relevance in the association. The 1963 merger of the then-AIEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers) and the IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers) created today’s international IEEE and reflected the major convergence of tech that has carried us to the present day.
