Our Mission & Vision
IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. Through its global membership, IEEE is a leading authority on areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions.
What We Do
IEEE members are engineeris, scientists and allied professionals whose technical interests are rooted in electrical and computer sciences, engineering and related disciplines.
IEEE publishes nearly a third of the wolds’s technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science and electronics. This includes more than 148 transactions, journals and magazines published annually.
Each year, over 100,000 technical professionals attend the more than 1,300 conferences from microelectronics and microwaves to sensors and security, IEEE conferences cover relevant topics that showcase the depth and breadth of members’ technical fields.
IEEE is a leading developer of international standards that underpin many of today’s telecommunications, information technology and power generation products and services.
