IEEE Young Professionals is an international community of enthusiastic, dynamic, and innovative members and volunteers. IEEE is committed to helping young professionals evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image, and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network. In addition, PES members who have received their first professional degree within the last fifteen years are automatically PES Young Professionals members. Currently, there are over 3,200 PES Young Professionals worldwide.
