IEEE, the largest technical organization in the world, was formed in 1963 with the merging of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Institute of Radio Engineers. In 1894, the first Chicago Section meeting was held at the Armour Institute, now known as Illinois Institute of Technology. The Chicago Section was only the second section created after the New Jersey section.
Last year, on April 27, 2019, the Chicago section held its 125th anniversary at the same location the first meeting was held 125 years ago. The event was a great success, and as a result, the section has decided to turn this event into an annual opportunity for various IEEE Chicago section entities to get together, showcase their activities, and attract potential Chicago Section Members and Student Branch Members. Most importantly, the event is intended to encourage Middle and High school students to pursue their interest in the STEM fields.
Due to COVID-19, we will be holding our 126th anniversary as a virtual event. More details will be posted.
