金沙集团app, 一个致力于推动创新和技术卓越造福人类的组织, is the world's largest technical professional society. It is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, 以及构成现代文明基础的计算机领域和相关科学技术领域.

金沙集团app的起源可以追溯到1884年,当时电力开始对社会产生重大影响. There was one major established electrical industry, the telegraph, 自19世纪40年代以来,用比交通运输速度还快的数据通信系统连接世界的是什么. The telephone and electric power and light industries had just gotten underway.

Meaning of I-E-E-E

金沙集团app,发音为Eye-triple-E,是电气和电子工程师协会的缩写. The organization is chartered under this name and it is the full legal name.

However, as the world's largest technical professional organization, 金沙集团app's membership has long been composed of engineers, scientists, 和盟军的专业人士. 这些人包括计算机科学家, software developers, 信息技术专业人员, physicists, medical doctors, 除了金沙集团app的电气和电子工程核心之外,还有许多其他的. For this reason the organization no longer goes by the full name, 除了合法的商业文件, 简称金沙集团app.

AIEE的建立

In the spring of 1884, a small group of individuals in the electrical professions met in New York, USA. 他们成立了一个新的组织——美国电气工程师协会,来支持他们新生领域的专业人员,并帮助他们努力将创新应用于改善人类, or AIEE for short. 同年10月,AIEE在美国费城召开了第一次技术会议. 许多早期的领导人,如西部联合电报公司的创始人诺文·格林,都来自电报行业.

Others, such as Thomas Edison, came from power, while Alexander Graham Bell represented the telephone industry. 电力迅速传播, enhanced by innovations such as AC induction motors, 远距离交流传播, 和更大的发电厂. Companies such as AEG, General Electric, Siemens & Halske, and Westinghouse underwrote its commercialization. AIEE越来越关注电力及其通过前所未有的产品和服务改变人们生活的能力. 其次是有线通信,即电报和电话. 通过技术会议, publications, 及推广标准, the AIEE led the growth of the electrical engineering profession, while through local sections and Student Branches, it brought its benefits to engineers in widespread places.

IRE的建立

A new industry arose, beginning with Guglielmo Marconi’s wireless telegraphy experiments in 1895-1896. 从约翰·弗莱明的二极管和李·德·福里斯特的三极管发展而来的真空管中固有的电放大可能性,最初被称为“无线”电报成为无线电. 1912年,伴随着这个新兴工业出现了一个新社会,无线电工程师协会.

IRE是以AIEE为模型的,但主要是研究无线电,然后广泛地研究电子学. It also furthered its profession by linking members through publications, standards, 和会议,并鼓励他们组织地方部门和会议,以交换信息和想法.

这些社会趋同和合并

Through the help of leadership from the two societies, and with the applications of its members' innovations to industry, electricity wove its way more deeply into every corner of life, through television, radar, transistors, and computers. Increasingly, the interests of the societies overlapped.

两个社团的会员人数都有所增加, 但从20世纪40年代开始, the IRE grew faster and in 1957 became the larger group. On 1 January 1963, AIEE和IRE合并成立了电气和电子工程师协会, or 金沙集团app. 在成立之初,金沙集团app有15万名金沙集团app,其中14万人居住在美国.

增长和全球化

在接下来的几十年里, 在金沙集团app的支持下,技术的社会作用继续在世界各地蔓延,并深入到人们生活的越来越多的领域. 前身机构的专业团体和技术委员会演变成金沙集团app协会. 到21世纪初, 金沙集团app served its members and their interests with 39 Societies; 130 journals, transactions, and magazines; more than 300 conferences annually; and 900 active standards.

Since that time, 计算机从大型主机发展到桌面设备,再到便携式设备, linked to global networks connected by copper wire, microwaves, satellites, or fiber optics. 金沙集团app的兴趣领域已经远远超出了电气电子工程和计算领域,扩展到了微纳米技术等领域, ultrasonics, bioengineering, robotics, electronic materials, and many others. 电子产品变得无处不在, 从喷气式飞机驾驶舱到工业机器人再到医学成像,一切都被整合在一起.

随着技术和开发它们的产业日益超越国界, 金沙集团app has kept pace. 它现在是一个全球性的机构,利用其代表的实践者的创新,提高金沙集团app在向金沙集团app提供产品和服务方面的卓越表现, industries, 以及广大公众. Publications and educational programs are delivered online, as are member services such as renewal and elections. By 2020, 金沙集团app comprised over 395,000 members in 160 countries. Through its global network of geographical units, publications, web services, and conferences, 金沙集团app remains the world's largest technical professional organization.
