What is IEEE and why IEEE?


What is IEEE?
IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
IEEE is a nonprofit organization founded in 1963. It works solely toward innovating, educating and standardizing the electrical and electronic development industry. It is best known for its development of standards such as IEEE 802.11.
There are many societies in the world like “IET”,”ALMA MATER SOCIETY”, “Studentenverbindungen” etc but IEEE is the only one that working for the advancing technology for humanity. IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology. Yes, we can say that IEEE is the world largest technical leading society. IEEE has numerous benefits some of them are written bellow.
