Editor's Note

We dedicate this issue to IEEE's 125th anniversary

8 June 2009

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers on 13 May 1884, The Institute dedicates this issue to those who set IEEE on the path of becoming what it is today: the world’s largest technical professional association.

We explore IEEE’s development in “Looking Back 125 Years." In “Tracking Tech History” we offer a brief look at three key technologies in which IEEE members played starring roles.

IEEE membership offers a wide range of benefits and opportunities for those who share a common interest in technology. If you are not already a member, consider joining IEEE and becoming part of a worldwide network of more than 400,000 students and professionals.
