IEEE(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is an association dedicated to advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity, is the world’s largest technical professional society. It is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, and computing fields and related areas of science and technology that underlie modern civilization. IEEE’s roots go back to 1884 when electricity began to become a major influence in society. There was one major established electrical industry, the telegraph, which since the 1840s had come to connect the world with a data communication system faster than the speed of transportation. The telephone and electric power and light industries had just gotten underway. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its more than 420,000 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. 334 Sections in ten geographic Regions worldwide, 2,116 Chapters that unite local members with similar technical interests, 3,005 Student Branches at colleges and universities in over 100 countries and 1,481 Student Branch chapters of IEEE technical societies.
IEEE Student Branch, GITAM(Deemed to be University), the largest technical professional organization elevate the qualities of the members with it's conferences, technology standards, professional and educational activities. IEEE Student Branch, GITAM(Deemed to be University) has many technical societies which are active participants in research, conferences, and providing cutting-edge research and knowledge like APS(Antenna Propagation Society), SPS(Signal Processing Society), RAS(Robotics and Automation Society), CS(Computer Society), PES(Power and Energy Society) and WIE(Women in Engineering).
IEEE Technical team helps foster the development and facilitate the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge that benefits the members. The non technical aspects include the career and organisational management, and improving interpersonal skills. IEEE Student Branch, GITAM(Deemed to be University), believes in the idea of helping people build and grow through integrity. Humanity is one of our main motives to nurture the present for a better tomorrow.
The mission of GITAM IEEE is to provide every assistance possible, so that students can learn and enhance their technical knowledge and managerial skills. We at GITAM IEEE, strive to provide various learning facilities that will help us in developing a wide range of skill sets, ranging from soft skills such as communication skills, social skills, social intelligence, character traits, teamwork in technical projects etc. which will help us to become a better human and thus to set the trend for others to follow.
To become a global technical community, GITAM IEEE is known for its contribution in the field of technology and promoting the interest of other professional societies by broadening and improving public understanding. It also extends its support to other unpopular groups in order set higher standards and to march towards its aim for further improvement in global conditions.
