Middle East 

Among President de Marca's priorities is to increase IEEE’s global penetration, improve service to and engagement with young professionals worldwide, and increase industry participation in IEEE.

The Middle East, part of Region 8, has over 15,000 IEEE members, not much below that of Regions 7 and 9. It is a region of the world with a large number of very motivated students, well-educated young professionals, and a large number of engineers. In Jordan, for example, there are over 110,000 registered engineers.

President de Marca’s visit to the Middle East was targeted to find ways to engage and better serve this large existing membership and engineering community and to explore potential for membership growth.
