  • IEEE

    IEEE, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (Don't miss the ending s in Electronics), is the world's largest technical professional society, founded in 1884 by a handful of practitioners of the new electrical engineering discipline. The Vision of IEEE is to advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers, and promoting community worldwide. Members of Institute share global access to new technical developments, formulate internationally recognized standards, and serve the community at large.

    PolyU Student Branch

    An IEEE Student Branch is a sub-division of IEEE located at Technical Universities. It has the task to make students familiar with the IEEE and to inform them about the activities of IEEE.

    Founded in 1995, the IEEE student branch in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University aims at forming a connection between students in PolyU and the IEEE, by providing information and activities that enhance professional development for students studying in disciplines related to IEEE.
