IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE, pronounced “Eye-triple-E”, stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The association is chartered under this name and it is the full legal name. However, as the world’s largest technical professional association, IEEE’s membership has long been composed of engineers, scientists, and allied professionals. These include computer scientists, software developers, information technology professionals, physicists, medical doctors, and many others in addition to our electrical and electronics engineering core. For this reason the organization no longer goes by the full name, except on legal business documents, and is referred to simply as IEEE. IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE’s vision statement is: 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
College of Engineering Attingal
College of Engineering, Attingal, commonly known as (CEAL), is situated in Attingal. This college was established by the Institute of Human Resources Development in 2004, undertaken by Government of Kerala. The college is affiliated to KTU and is approved by All India Council for Technical Education
- Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering
- Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Bachelor of Technology in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
The IEEE College of Engineering, Attingal Student Branch was established in the year 2010. Since then we have been actively participating and arranging several events under the Kerala section. We have been noted among other SB’s for conducting as many events as possible with lesser members. We aim to develop technical knowledge among members as well as other students in the college. The SB got approval for Robotics and Automation Society and Women in Engineering Affinity Group.
The IEEE SB CEAL has always tried to arrange as many events as possible every academic year. We have achieved successes for every event conducted with huge number of participants from several other colleges. We plan for several workshops, Seminars, Weekly talks, Industrial visits, project expos and several other events for an academic year. Our past few events were CMS workshop, Python Workshop, IV to ISRO, Thumba, IV to Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, and IV to Fablab. We have actively participated in events conducted by other SBs.
IEEE Kerala Section
IEEE activities in Kerala have reached its 33rd year. Initiated on 17 February 1975 as a subsection under the then India section, Kerala subsection became part of the Bangalore Section in 1976 upon formation of India Council. Kerala became a full Section in 1983. The section has been very active since its formation. It has been holding a national or international seminar every year since 1984. As of January 2008, Kerala Section has around 1500 members including student members. The section has a Computer Society Chapter, a Power engineering Society Chapter, a joint Chapter on Industry Applications & Industrial Electronics Societies and a Communication Society Chapter. Two affinity groups called IEEE GOLD and IEEE Women in Engineering are running under this section. Student branches have been established in 52 Engineering Colleges.
IEEE India Council
IEEE India Council is the umbrella organisation which coordinates IEEE activities in India. Its primary aim is to assist and coordinate the activities of local “Sections”, in order to benefit mutually, and avoid duplication of effort and resources. IEEE India Council was established on 20th May 1976 and is one of the five councils in the Asia Pacific Region (Region 10 of IEEE).
IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
An “IEEE Section” is an IEEE entity which caters to the needs of a specified geographical area. At present, there are 10 IEEE Sections in India (listed alphabetically):
- Bangalore Section
- Bombay Section
- Calcutta Section
- Delhi Section
- Gujarat Section
- Hyderabad Section
- Kerala Section
- Kharagpur Section
- Madras Section
- Uttar Pradesh Section
The IEEE Region 10, also sometimes referred as the Asia Pacific Region, comprises of 56 Sections, 5 Councils, 12 Sub-sections, 400+ Chapters and 583 student branches. It covers a geographical area stretching from South Korea and Japan in the north-east to New Zealand in the south, and Pakistan in the west. With a membership of 73,662, it is one of the largest regions in IEEE.
In order to fulfill IEEE’s mission of advancing the theory and practice of electrical, electronics, communications and computer engineering, as well as computer science and related areas, Region 10 activities are directed to developing and maintaining regional entities for the best interests and benefits of the IEEE members in the region.To achieve that mission, the Regional activities include:
- To formulate goals and objectives for the Region
- To plan Regional operations, including budget preparation and approval
- To report officer, financial operation and meeting reports to the Regional Activities Department
- To plan and implement programs in support of the local organizational units in meeting the needs of the members of the Region
- To plan and implement programs for the volunteer structure of the Region, for example, develop and implement leadership training programs for volunteers and members to enhance their interpersonal skills, group skills and leadership abilities
- To provide leadership opportunities for interested members to take an active role within the operations of the Region.
