Qualifications for Member Grade:
In order to qualify for Member grade, you must demonstrate you are regularly employed in IEEE-designated fields with a combination of education and work experience for at least six years.
How to apply for Member grade transition:
Once you update your member profile and if you meet the criteria as outlined above, you will automatically be elevated to Member grade. Please allow 24-48 hours to see this reflected in your profile. You will also receive a new IEEE membership card that reflects your new grade. There is no change to your IEEE membership dues.
