How To Become An IEEE Member?
To become an IEEE member, you have three ways to choose from.
1. Register online at www.ieee.org/join where you would need to pay using a credit card. Registering online includes:
Secure vs. Non-Secure:
When you click Begin Membership Application, you are using the Secure option which safeguards you against credit card fraud by encrypting data as it is transferred from your web browser to our server. This method is preferable.
If you are accessing this site from behind a firewall or your web browser does not support secure servers, you may use the NON-SECURE option to begin the application process.
2. Print and Mail with Payment Option.
Get the convenience of using the web form without submitting a credit card over the Internet.
1 - Click Begin Membership Application above
2 - After the application summary, click the Checkout button
3 - Select Option 2, Print and Mail with Payment
You may also obtain a hard-copy application by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by downloading an Adobe PDF application.
3. Through our IEEE UTM Student Branch. We hold recruitments drives for both half-year and full year membership. To help students register conveniently, our student branch gives out free membership forms to anyone interested. He or she then just need to fill in the forms according to the samples we prepared. We receive cash for payment and we help to endorse and send every form received to the IEEE Admission and Advancement Department.
Your IEEE member number will arrive by postal mail in:
5 - 7 business days (for US applicants)
2 - 4 weeks (for applicants outside the US)
