IEEE membership is open to professionals and Students with varying levels of academic accomplishment and work experience. Technical and non-technical applicants who would benefit by membership and participation in the IEEE enter as Associate members. Member and Senior Member grades recognize those who have achieved professional proficiency, as demonstrated by degrees received and/or work experience.

Application for membership can be done on-line here.

Elevation to Senior Member

If you can answer yes to these three questions, you are eligible to upgrade your status to the grade of Senior Member:

  • Are you an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive or originator in an IEEE field?
  • Have you been in professional practice for at least ten years (can include 3 years for degree study in an IEEE-designated field, 4 years for degree plus masters, or 5 years for a PhD)?
  • Have you shown significant performance over a period of at least five of those years? This can be in roles such as team leader, task supervisor, researcher with some measure of success (papers), or faculty developing and teaching courses with research and publications.

During the application for becoming IEEE Senior Member, it is requested to indicate three names of IEEE Senior Members or Fellows with their IEEE Identification numbers, who will be invited by the IEEE to provide their recommendation. The applicant has to contact the three Senior Members or Fellows to receive confirmation of their intention to provide recommendation and their IEEE ID number.
