Brittany Wojciehowski Dr. Peter Van Cleave HST 318 History of Engineering 3/27/2016 Unit 2 Capstone The American Institute of Electrical Engineers society (AIEE) merged with the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) in 1963 to form the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). IEEE is the group I researched but I suppose I could say I chose AIEE and its migration to IEEE is one of the changes it has made from its founding years to now. The IEEE has a subgroup called the Computer Group or the Computer Society (IEEE CS) and I will be referring to this section going forward as it most closely relates to my field of study and current career. The IEEE CS’s website 1 states their vision: “To be the leading provider of technical information, community services, and personalized services to the world’s computing professionals.” And their goal: “Be essential to the global technical community and computer professionals everywhere and be universally recognized for the contributions of technical professionals in developing and applying technology to improve global conditions.” This section of the website also discusses their constitution and this goes into further detail about the mission of IEEE CS as a society, specifying being “scientific, literary, and educational in character” and “encompass[ing] all aspects of theory, design, practice and application relating to computer and information processing science and technology”. I’ll only analyze the IEEE CS Society’s Higher Grade, Student, and Senior membership requirements 2 as those are the only memberships that have specific self-achieved requirements (i.e. Fellow Membership requires nomination from other members): Higher grade membership: Dues: $28 Computer Society annual Dues Can join CS separately or with IEEE membership IEEE membership provides magazine subscriptions, and access to tech/educational activities, and insurance programs Requirements (one of the following): an electrical engineer or computer scientist degree a degree related to the above degrees plus three years’ applicable professional experience

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
