As a member of IEEE you will be presented with new resources, valuable opportunities, and many discounts that will help you advance your career in the right direction. 

Through IEEE, you can find colleagues who share your vision and commitment. Join the more than 400,000 members around the world who are moving technology forward today.
In the spirit of IEEE's mission to "advance technology for humanity," IEEE offers an electronic membership (e-Membership) option with reduced dues.

The e-Membership option is available to new and renewing members who reside in countries where the per capita gross domestic product (GDP) does not exceed US$15,000 (per United Nations Guidelines). Annual base dues with e-Membership are just US$77*.


What is e-Membership?

A paperless membership option

IEEE continues to work for the benefit of its members. Membership affordability is one more way IEEE can help you do more.

Less paper means less environmental impact too.

Members who join or renew and select the e-Membership option will receive an electronic copy of their membership card and membership materials. All publications, including IEEE Spectrum magazine, The Institute, and Potentials, will also be delivered digitally.
