125 Years of IEEE History

In 2009, IEEE is marking its 125th
Anniversary with a wide range of
activities celebrating a century and
quarter of engineering the future.
While it is fi tting to see this occasion as
an opportunity to look forward, it also
is an occasion for IEEE to focus at least a
little attention on how, from its modest
beginnings in the United States, it grew
to be the largest professional technical
society in the world.
