IEEE and its members strive to inspire a global community through its publications, conferences, technology standards and professional activities. With more than 430,000 IEEE members in over 160 countries, IEEE publishes a third of the world's technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science and electronics - a leading developer of international standards.


IEEE Young Professionals is an international community of enthusiastic, dynamic, and innovative members and volunteers. IEEE is committed to helping young professionals evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image, and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.


IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is the largest international professional organization dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests to a career in engineering.


IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) is one of the world’s largest organizations specializing in global design, development, application, and management of electrical and electronic systems, apparatus, devices, and controls. As a member, you’ll receive access to groundbreaking technical information through various magazines, conferences and digital library.


IEEE Computer Society is a professional society that acts as a source of information, inspiration, and collaboration in computer science and engineering. Connecting members worldwide, the Computer Society empowers the people who advance technology by delivering tools for individuals at all stages of their professional careers. 


IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) provides the world's largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public.


IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) is a transnational society with more than 11,000 members and 150 chapters worldwide. This society promotes the advancement of microwave theory and its applications, including RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies. MTT-S continues to be the global focus for promotion of the RF and microwave engineering profession, by advancing and distributing knowledge and supporting professional development. The activities sponsored by the MTT-S include a broad spectrum of conferences, workshops, tutorials, technical committees, chapter meetings, publications and professional education programs.


IEEE Southern Alberta is a group of individuals involved in both academia and the engineering workforce, with backgrounds and roles in Electrical and Computer Engineering located in Calgary, Alberta.


IEEE Canada is the Canadian arm (as Region 7) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as well as the constituent society of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) for the technical fields of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering.
