IEEE Membership

Member grades explained…

The group is here to support membership development of the IEEE and this page contains specific information for the UK and Ireland Section as well as links to useful pages of the main IEEE Website. If you are thinking about becoming a member this link is a good starting point.

Special rates are available for those with special circumstances for example those on a very low income, in retirement, unemployment, or with a permanent disability.  If you think you may be eligible, then please contact Member Services, providing as much detail as possible in your message.

As a Section, we recently received a reward for our membership development work, related to our membership retention, and this means that you, as our members, have been loyal to IEEE and the Section, for which we want to thank you. As with many things, there is always room for improvement and we are always happy to hear from members, thereby ensuring that we continue developing loyalty to IEEE.  Please get in touch with questions and/or comments.
