Background and History

The history of IEEE student branch at North Carolina State University dates back to the early 1900's, making it one of the older student organizations on campus. In 1910 a group of electrical engineering students formed a student chapter of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE). After World War II had ended, NC State became the home of an Institute Engineers (IRE) student chapter in 1947. These two organizations would later merge into what we know today as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) student branch in 1963.

The IEEE (pronounced Eye-triple-E) student branch today has over 200 members. We strive to instill professional awareness and promote technical development among our members through various activities and services. The student branch also works with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the local HKN student chapter to provide students with a chance to enhance their technical and professional skills beyond the classroom.
