About this organization







IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.


MEMBERSHIP/PUBLIC IMPERATIVE: IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. In 2018 IEEE's total members was 422,460, from more than 160 countries worldwide; student memberships were 123,508; total IEEE society memberships were 328,558 from 39 IEEE Societies. As part of its growing focus on global public policy, the IEEE Board of Directors adopted multiple position statements in 2018, offering recommendations to policy makers around the world supporting the following topics: advancing universal access to the internet, privacy engineering and strong encryption. IEEE also increased activities in public policy activity by the newly formed IEEE European Public Policy Initiative and the IEEE Standards Association's Ethically Aligned Design initiative. IEEE-USA, which promotes the careers and public policy interests of IEEE engineering, computing and technology professionals, also supported legislative efforts promoting quantum research, artificial intelligence and support for small tech business. IEEE continued its outreach to improve technology infrastructure where it is needed through a number of collaborative projects. IEEE SIGHT is a global network of IEEE volunteers partnering with underserved communities and local organizations to identify and address critical problems. Some success stories from 2018 include: 1) IEEE SIGHT group based in El Salvador installed a photovoltaic system connected to the grid to reduce energy consumption. This project will benefit 1,600 people; 2) Maskwacis, Canada, is a First Nations Community located on an indigenous reserve where there is little access or connection to the internet, a local resident, self-taught engineer, founded the Mamawapowin Technology Society to bring free internet connection to Maskwacis. The project will ultimately impact approximately 8,000 residents over the course of three years; 3) Tilapia ponds have been implemented in Paraguay's indigenous communities as a source for food and economic enrichment. Due to insufficient knowledge and training, the production levels are not enough to provide for the communities. IEEE SIGHT Paraguay pooled knowledge from local resources to install new tilapia ponds equipped with solar water pumps, solar lighting and mechanized fish harvesting systems that help ensure the ponds become a beneficial resource.
