Anyone here part of IEEE? I just joined as a student, hopefully I'll get something out of it while I'm a member.


Edit: title is supposed to be all caps.. oh well.

Click Edit > Go Advanced, then you can modify the title. I am not a member of IEEE

I probably should join, and have thought about doing so several times, but have never gotten around to it.

BTW, not really sure what this has to do with Mac programming?

MR prevents the title from being all caps, even after you edit it.

Heh, I figured it would get more attention here, but maybe it should be moved. Up to a mod on that.

I think you have a good point. I'm in Computer Science right now and have been debating an IEEE membership as well, but I'm not sure if it's worth the $50 a year. I'm thinking an ACM membership would be more beneficial for me since it would give me access to many computer journals online for when I write papers.

I was a student member all through undergrad and graduate school. I'm a full time member as an employee of IBM now. The discount on conference admission prices is worth the yearly IEEE dues alone. It's a fantastic resource, I highly recommend being an active member either in your local chapter or through the various publications and conferences.

I was also a student member in grad school, it was free (or practically so). With my current job it doesn't make a lot of sense, but there are other professional societies that I am a member of. I generally recommend that students be members of as many appropriate societies as possible, just to get maximum exposure/familiarity with their industry.

I tried to change it, also, and obviously it didn't work. You could always spell it out.
