We encourage Rochester IEEE members to consider upgrading their membership to Senior Member if they qualify. Only 8% of IEEE’s approximately 400,000 members hold this grade. Being honored as a Senior Member requires extensive experience and documented achievements of significance.
Senior Member is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply. To be eligible for application, candidates must:
- be engineers, scientists, educators, technical executives, or originators in IEEE-designated fields;
- have experience reflecting professional maturity;
- have been in professional practice for at least 10 years;
- show significant performance over a period of at least 5 of their years in professional practice.
