What is IEEE ?
IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and is the greatest institution in the field of electronics and electric engineering. IEEE hosts a large part of the development of technology at this field. If you look up the name written on your wireless modem box, you see IEEE 802.11 standard. In addition to the standardization, IEEE hosts many scientific and financial conferences and scientific journals as well.
IEEE doesn’t have a lot of employees and most of the projects specially the scientific ones are accomplished by voluntary members.
IEEE has more than 400000 members. This institute has divided the world into 10 regions. IEEE Iran section is located at the 8th region and we are also a part of it. Iran section was established more than 40 years ago. In each region, each university could have its own IEEE student branch.
IEEE is proud to call some of the greatest inventors in history IEEE members. There’s Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, and Alexander Graham Bell, all of whom need no introduction. Then there’s Martin Cooper, who invented the handheld cellular phone, and Ralph H. Baer, the inventor of the home console for video games. Leonard Kleinrock, Robert E. Kahn, and Vinton Cerf are credited with helping to develop ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet.
What do we do at the IEEE branch?
Here’s a list of what we do:
1-Classes:Latex, HSPICE, PSPICE, AVR, MATLAB
2-Accomplishing Assistant Student plans
3-Contests:ITCM, ISX, MATLAB, XTREME

And lots of other work that you can suggest
What’s in the IEEE membership? How to be an IEEE member?
First of all, Activity in the branch does not have membership in IEEE.
What does it mean?
Let us explain to you:
For joining IEEE you have to pay an annual fee. By paying this fee, they give you an email address so you could use the papers and also have access to IEEE Spectrum magazines. And also a lot of other features that you could look it up at IEEE.org.
But if you want to just join IEEE student branch, you don’t have to join the community, just fill the form in our site and hand it in to us.
Although joining IEEE student branch is easy, if you want to be an important part of student branch, you should come here frequently and communicate more with other members.
One of the most important benefits gained by joining the Student Branch is being a part of a team which makes you more responsible and you can learn a lot of skills such as writing reports, documentation, website designing and etc. Also you can gain management experiences.
But if you are not sure that you want to be a part of us, you should come here more often and decide for yourself. If you don’t know anybody there, don’t worry you’ll find a lot of new friends
