Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
IEEE is a professional association with its corporate office in New York City and its operations center in Piscataway, New Jersey. It was formed in 1963 from the amalgamation of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Institute of Radio Engineers.
As of 2018, it is the world’s largest association of technical professionals, Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering and allied disciplines. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its more than 423,000 members in over 160 countries, and its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe. IEEE and its organizational units engage in coordinated public policy activities at the national, regional, and international levels in order to advance the mission and vision of securing the benefits of technology for the advancement of society.
IEEE provides its members and volunteers with networking and interaction opportunities through local meetings and events hosted by the local Sections, Chapters, and other regional governing bodies. IEEE creates an environment where members collaborate on world‐changing technologies, from computing and sustainable energy systems to aerospace, communications, robotics, healthcare, and more.
IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions.

IEEE Region 6 – Western US
IEEE is divided into ten worldwide geographic regions. Within the regions, there are local sections, chapters, and affinity groups. Together, these units conduct over 10,000 meetings a year and enable members to network and explore their technical interests as a community. Region 6 is one of 10 geographic regions of IEEE. Region 6 covers the Western U.S. – from Alaska to New Mexico and Montana to Hawaii and is shown in purple in the map above. The Region has 35 Sections and 2 sub-Sections, organized in to 5 Areas: Northeast, Northwest, Central, Southern and Southwest.

IEEE Phoenix Section
The IEEE Phoenix section lies in the Southwest of the IEEE Region 6 and includes Northern Arizona. The Executive Committee (ExCom) takes sincere efforts to help the societies and student branches to collaborate on technical ideas and promotes networking among individuals in the section. It consist of student branches and chapters from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, DeVry University and Grand Canyon University. The societies in the section are Computer Society (CS) Chapter, Waves and Devices (WAD) Chapter, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society Chapter, Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT) Society Chapter, Power & Energy Society (PES) Chapter, Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Chapter, Signal Processing & Communications (SPCom) Societies Chapter, Education Society (EdSoc) Chapter, Women in Engineering (WIE) and the recently added Circuits and Systems Society.
The ExCom recognizes the contribution of each IEEE member in the section by organization a board appreciation dinner annually. The Annual IEEE Phoenix Section banquet is held in the month of April where individuals are honored for their valuable contributions to IEEE and the community. Several awards and scholarships are given for outstanding achievements accomplished in the past calendar year. An esteemed guest from the industry or academia is invited to deliver the keynote session, which is the highlight of the evening.

IEEE Student Branch at ASU
Student Branches provide an opportunity for Student members to begin networking in their areas of interest and future profession. There are nearly 2,000 Student Branches in 80 countries, at various educational institutions. IEEE ASU lies in the Phoenix Section under IEEE Region 6.
IEEE Student Branch at ASU is one of the oldest professional and technical student organization at ASU. This branch comes in the IEEE Phoenix Section of the Region 6. Over the past years, IEEE Student Branch at ASU has been awarded with several sectional and regional awards for its exceptional support to the students of engineering at ASU. Along with technical workshops, industry seminars and tech-talks, they have been providing professional services such as resume building and networking techniques to the students. Their sincere efforts have been recognized by awarding them the ‘Outstanding Large Student Branch of the Year 2018’ at the annual Phoenix Section awards. The Student Branch at ASU Board comprises of 20 elected officers every academic year. Currently, there are over 600 active members from various educational degree levels. Every member being an officer gets enough opportunities in leadership, planning and executing of events. Each officer is given a certain job in which they have the freedom to work on the ideas they have and execute them eventually.
As an IEEE Student Branch promotes undertaking strong Leadership and responsibilities, enhancing communication skills and technical ethics. A platform to go forward with ideas in science & technology, Access to the digital library and opportunities to collaborate, networking with people directly related to the industry and exposure to jobs.
Goal : Sharing ideas and making more opportunities for students to interact with people from industries and academics.
