IEEE Fellows Program Marks 50th Anniversary

  1. 1. IEEE Fellows Program Marks 50th Anniversary LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 10 January 2014 -- In 2014, IEEE will mark its 50th Fellow Class. It represents decades of honoring IEEE Fellows whose extraordinary accomplishments have changed the world. The IEEE grade of Fellow was born in 1964 out of the merger of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). The emphasis on the elevation is reserved for select IEEE members who have contributed importantly to the advancement of engineering, science, and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society. Only one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership can be elevated in any one year. Over the last 50 years, IEEE has elevated roughly 10,000 members to this honor. Throughout the year, various celebrations will take place to honor those who have achieved this distinction. The Fellows Directory has been recently redesigned, offering comprehensive online search and networking. Visit the site to complete an IEEE Fellow nomination, gather information for a region, section, or society. The information in the directory can be accessed by six categories: alphabetical by last name, year elevated, gender, IEEE region, IEEE society, and deceased. Within these categories, members can search, sort, or run a filter. The directory allows members to view the profiles of Fellows plus the ability to network with the Fellows.
