The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest technical professional society. Founded in 1884 by a handful of practitioners of the new electrical engineering discipline. The men and women of the IEEE are the technical and scientific professionals making the revolutionary engineering advances which are reshaping our world today.
The purpose of activities is two fold: (1) to enhance the quality of life for all peoples through improved public awareness of the influences and applications of its technologies; and (2) to advance the standing of the engineering profession and its members.
The IEEE, through its members, provides leadership in areas ranging from aerospace, computers and communications to biomedical technology, electric power and consumer electronics.
About IEEE Young Professionals YP (previously known as Graduates of Last Decade (GOLD))
With over 50,000 members, IEEE Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) is a vibrant community of engineers, scientists, and technical experts with member representation across the globe and throughout IEEE societies. IEEE GOLD was created in 1996 as a membership program to help students transition to young professionals within the larger IEEE community.
The first ten years after graduation from university can be challenging for young professionals. Employment searches, new jobs, professional growth, career development, and life status changes are common experiences for many recent graduates. Going through these challenges can be daunting but IEEE members never have to go through these experiences alone or uninformed. IEEE young professionals are automatically added to the GOLD member community as they graduate.
Benefits of the IEEE GOLD program include:
- IEEE technology and information
- Online research & career resources
- Online job search
- Online seminars
- Professional networking opportunities
- Peer connection
- Local social activities
- Leadership opportunities
