Formal IEEE involvement in Australia occurred with the formation in Sydney of the Australian Section on August 16th 1972. Steady growth in the following years saw the Australian Section become the New South Wales Section, and the Australia Council was established on May 30th, 1986.
State-based sections were formed in Victoria and Western Australia in 1983 and 1984 respectively, and this provided the impetus for having a separate section in Queensland.
In late 1984 Mat Darveniza, Miles Moody and David Thiel began the work that would culminate in the establishment of the Queensland Section. The letter petitioning the formation of the section is located here.
The IEEE document establishing the foundation of the Queensland Section is located here.
The IEEE document confirming the foundation of the Queensland Section is located here.
Medicine and Biology Society (2008) and Women in Engineering (2010) chapters have been added to complement the list of members’ interests.
