Senior Membership in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).

The IEEE (pronounced "Eye-triple-E"), is a non-profit, technical professional association of more than 377,000 individual members in 150 countries. Fewer than 7% of IEEE members have achieved Senior Member status.

By virtue of its members, the IEEE is a leading authority in technical areas ranging from computer engineering, biomedical technology, and telecommunications, to electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics.

Through its technical publishing, conferences, and consensus-based Standards activities,
the IEEE produces almost 30 percent of the world's published literature in the fields of electrical engineering, computers, and control technology.

The IEEE annually hosts more than 300 major conferences and maintains nearly 900 active Standards, with another 700 under development.

Exceeding the basic membership requirements of education, Senior Membership in the IEEE is awarded to those IEEE members who have made significant contributions to their profession.
The requirements for Senior Membership include at least ten years of professional experience and references from other Senior Members.

In the words of the IEEE, Senior Membership is "The professional recognition of your peers for technical and professional excellence".

Mr. Barrett, a graduate of Portland State University (PSU) and a Licensed Engineer active in the Oregon Section of the IEEE, notes that significant features of Senior IEEE Membership include the eligibility to hold certain IEEE positions, and to participate in activities such as ABET accreditation visits to leading universities.

January 2003

Portland, OR - February is National Engineer's Week, and Barrett & Assoc. Engineering is encouraging everyone to participate in Portland's annual celebration.

National Engineer's Week is an opportunity for engineers to share their experience with local high school students interested in math and science.

National sponsors of the event include the National Society of Professional Engineers, NSPE. Portland's annual celebration is sponsored by Oregon's engineering societies, Oregon's institutions of higher learning, and our educational community in general.

Local events are coordinated by the Professional Engineers of Oregon, PEO, with the able assistance of employees of Portland's branch of the URS Corporation.

The main events in Portland are an interesting tour, followed by a semi-formal dinner at the Lloyd Center Red Lion Inn. For a nominal fee, individual engineers can sponsor and accompany one or more students to both events.
