Requirements for elevation to IEEE Senior Member
IEEE Bylaw I-105.3 sets forth the criteria for elevation to Senior Member Grade, as follows:
"… a candidate shall be an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive or originator
in IEEE-designated fields. The candidate shall have been in professional practice for at
least ten years and shall have shown significant performance over a period of at least
five of those years."
There is no cost to convert to a Senior Member. "Senior" refers to professional experience, not age, and you do not need to be a "senior citizen" to be a Senior Member.

The IEEE Graduate Teaching Award is a Technical Field Award established by the Board of Directors in 1990 and renamed in honor of Leon K. Kirchmayer in 2002. Dr. Kirchmayer was well known and revered throughout the world for his commitment to students and education.
This award honors teachers of electrical and electronics engineering and the related disciplines, 'for inspirational teaching of graduate students in the IEEE fields of interest.'
Nomination Deadline – 31 January
The IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award is a Technical Field Award of the Institute established by the Board of Directors in 1990 to honor teachers of electrical and electronics engineering and the related disciplines, 'for inspirational teaching of undergraduate students in the fields of interest of the IEEE.'
The purpose of this article is to remind all IEEE members of the changes in the IEEE Fellow nomination process that have taken place over the past several years, mainly in the effort to generate more Fellow nominations from industry
Changes were initiated in 2003 - to the Fellow process – and to the appropriate IEEE By-Laws - to assure equal opportunity for election to IEEE Fellow grade of members with careers involving the application of technology. The changes actually took effect for the Fellow class of 2005.
The IEEE Bylaws were amended to clarify the eligibility of Application engineers and Practitioners, and to establish the realization of the significant value to society standard for evaluating nominations. Fellow candidates are now classified as – Application Engineer / Practitioner, Research Engineer / Scientist, Technical Leader, or Educator.
Another important step in modernizing the Fellow nomination process is that the nomination forms and instructions are available on the IEEE Web site – and that the nomination forms can now be submitted electronically. See the IEEE Web site at (www.ieee.org/fellow).
Although electronic submittal of Fellow nominations is highly recommended, and is the preferred method of submittal, the forms and instructions are also available in hard copy (via E mail to “email@example.com”). Nomination forms are able to be submitted in either “hard copy”, or electronically via the WEB. The Class of 2007 Fellow nomination cycle ends March 1st, 2007.
All questions on the Fellow nomination process - or general Fellow questions should be referred to the IEEE Fellow staff – E mail – “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
IEEE Fellow grade membership is bestowed by the Board of Directors on IEEE Senior Members with an extraordinary record of accomplishment in any IEEE field of interest. The accomplishments honored shall have contributed significantly to the advancement of engineering, science and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society.
