What we are about

We are the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world's largest technical professional society. A non-profit organization, we promote the development and application of electrotechnology and allied sciences for the benefit of humanity, the advancement of the profession, and the well-being of our members.


Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) was formed in 1963 as a merger of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). IEEE is a transnational organization of over 320,000 members worldwide with activities at international, national, regional, and local levels. IEEE is active in establishing technical standards and promoting the exchange of technical and professional information through conferences, meetings, tutorials, publications, and audio-visual media including video tapes and satellite video conferences.

Currently, it is the only existing electrical and electronics engineering organization at San Francisco State University. It has brought the university a lot of accomplishments in the past, including the successful Micromouse Competition, where we won third place, which was held last May of 96.
