About IEEE



Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers,

Throughout the course of history, IEEE and its members have been leading the way in the evolution of technology. For more than a century, IEEE has continued this mission by convening the most brilliant minds in the field to help advance technology for the benefit of humanity. Right now, members are working on technologies that will impact our future, paving the way for the field and its many possibilities. Many of the devices we rely on today have been made possible because of IEEE’s members work with the added help of IEEE standards, research, conferences. 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. Thelma Estrin was one of the first to apply computer technology to health care and medical research, Fujio Masuoka invented flash memory, and Mitsumasa Koyanagi devised the stacked capacity cell—the dominant cell design for dynamic random access memory. And just today it was announced that IEEE members received Nobel Prizes in Physics for inventing the blue LED. In addition, IEEE members have helped create lasers, remote controls, the radio, the X-ray machine, and even the tattoo gun. With many of today’s most popular electronic devices, you will find IEEE standards involved. Anytime you connect to a wireless router, use your Bluetooth headset, watch 3-D television, take pictures or stream videos with your smartphone, or monitor physical activity with a fitness tracker, IEEE standards are at play. There are also medical devices used by hospitals that run on IEEE standards. Looking to the future, the contributions being made by IEEE members today will have a huge impact on the smart cities and smart grids of tomorrow. Can you imagine a world without these contributions?

IEEE Iran Section

Iran Section was founded in 1970, more than 40 years ago by the later Dr Abbas Tchamran. Iran Section was the 13th Section to establish in region 8, and with membership of about 2500, it is in the top 10 sections of Region 8 in terms of membership size. Iran Section oversees operation of about 30 student branches, hosts of annual national conferences, events, meetings and workshops.


IEEE student branch at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, after a long period in 1386 had been re established by a group of 1384 incoming students  who recognize the need for innovation in the field of extra-curricular activities and organizations of the Group of electricity. IEEE student branch was a kind of society that in addition to having a scientific nature, it worked in a large network in connection with the activities of Iran and the international organization IEEE. IEEE student branch of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad has come a long way since 1386 and has gone through frequent ups and downs, the  branch has now succeeded to become a live and active organization which has earned its own identity.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

Students in high school usually consider the university as a preface for entering the society; a place where they can attain useful skills and gain momentum and confidence. However, the moment they enter the university, they realize that the environment is mostly academic; whether they choose to adapt to this environment, they will find themselves close minded.
A person who chooses to participate in extracurricular activities, besides regular studies, and expands his skill set will be successful eventually.
I am interested in working with Student Branch because it gives me the opportunity to do group activities, learn responsibility, develop writing skills, and to overcome the hardship in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Student Branch is also a great place to experience various actions including academic, individual, and social activities.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

Great people to work with. Besides that, a lot of fun that is hard to miss. It kind of bugs my mind to focus only on studies. That’s why I joined IEEESB

Why did I join?

Everybody needs to belong somewhere. That’s just going to happen. So it’s better to choose consciously. It’s nice to be part of a community that is professional at what they do, and also have a fun and friendly atmosphere. It’s a change of tune from the daily life in the university. Two aspects from the university period will remain more vividly with people throughout the rest of their journey. Well maybe more than just two, but I want to make a persuasive point here and this argument is working. One is the knowledge obtained. Obviously, it’s the most important part, right? The second one is some good memories. The knowledge can be obtained in many forms but the commonly lacking one is through team work and a skilled community of peers and friends. As for the second one, to have good memories stored in your brain you need to experience a few at some point in life. This is the job of good friends. I am glad that I choose a premium package in both aspects.

Why did I stay?

I reached my goals and my expectations, and then I found new ones that I didn’t imagine before. I realized that IEEE provides a better model for the real world. A necessity that most universities are failing miserably to achieve. If you ever hope to move things around, you will need networking skills with real people. The professional peers of your field. In IEEE, making things happen translated in to the enjoyment of planning an event and seeing it go all the way through.
Temporary friends are easy to find and then easy to lose. I found unique friendships here. The kind that will remain in your life, if you are smart enough. They are and hopefully will be a big part of my life. Finally, I found some new goals and expectations. The experience of my seniors guided me through many difficulties here. I realized that I want to pass the torch to the next generation. I don’t want leave them in the vast darkness that is a normal, boring and kind of a fruitless university experience.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

The primary reason that made me interested in working with the Student Branch was to gain the ability to work in group activities; such as the ability to co-operate, manage different tasks, and to tackle possible obstacles.
As I started my activities in the Student Branch, I realized that the most important thing in every group activity is to have discipline, responsibility, and to consult with others. It was in the warm atmosphere of the Student Branch that I learnt about how to work with other people and how to accept their opinions and beliefs.
Among all the things I have learnt from working in a group, finding good friends and spending time with them were the best that I have attained.
Doing group activities with your friends is the best opportunity to gain enough confidence for doing greater tasks.

Why FUM IEEE Student Branch?

When you enter university, you find yourself in massive lectures and excessively crowded classes. In order to become more successful, students take one step further than the regular curriculum, they try to learn social skills and teamwork as well as mastering in technical or practical skills.
IEEE is an organization with a great background, an enormous network of professionals. In FUM IEEE sb as a part of this organization, I felt there would be space for me to explore new roles and potential leadership opportunities while creating a name and reputation for myself.
On the other hand, student branch is an energetic organization, full of kind and responsible people who are committed to providing non-beneficial high-quality services to electrical students and engineers. In addition, communication with all the student branch alumni which is available in FUM IEEE sb, make it a rewarding environment for those who want to learn and improve. I can easily and proudly say that I work with a number of professionals whom I consider mentors and friends.
Additionally, IEEE is a network that recognizes accomplishments at all levels, giving every member an opportunity to excel. That does not imply competitiveness, though; I was drawn to student branch’s collaborative environment and friendly colleagues, as well as the organization’s willingness to adapt to the unique needs of its growing members.
I chose to join IEEE Sb since the organization was experiencing tough days and was in a position that most of its activities was substantially suspended by the extremist vice dean of the faculty. After a while faculty board was renewed and we find the chance to reestablish the IEEE student branch. IEEE sb offered me the possibility to move up quickly within the organization and gain exposure to numerous functional areas.
During my time at FUM IEEE sb, I have been encouraged to excel in the duties specific to my role and also to provide my perspective on larger challenges and opportunities facing the firm.
Finally, in my experience, IEEE student branch offers the opportunity for members to make a personal impact on methods and policies.
