Connect yourself to the industry professionals in electrical and electronic engineering

If the needs of the industrial or commercial sector are your engineering interests, the Industry Applications Society will be a valuable connection. One of the largest special interest societies within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the IAS focuses specifically on the unique needs of industry and commerce. IAS is a source of professional power to its 13,000 worldwide members. Through a network of local chapters, regional events and national and international conferences, the society keeps members abreast of current technology in electricity and electronics. Through this sharing of specific industry-related solutions, IAS enriches both its individual members and the industry as a whole.

Active IAS members can be found virtually anywhere electricity or electronics is applied:

  • Industrial automation
  • Petrochemical
  • Lighting
  • Government
  • Manufacturing engineering
  • Pulp and paper
  • Textiles
  • Metals
  • Electrical safety
  • Mining utilities
  • Higher education
  • Cement

Three reasons to join IAS

  1. Informative meetings, seminars and conferences :

Exchange information with the foremost industrial experts through personal participation in local chapter meetings, seminars and regional, national and international conferences. The IAS has one of the largest programs of special interest within the IEEE, including:

  • Cement Industry Conference
  • Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Conference
  • Petroleum and Chemical Industry Conference
  • Appliance Industry Technical Conference
  • Rural Electric Power Industry Conference
  • Pulp and Paper Industry Conference
  • Rubber and Plastics Industry Conference
  • Textile Industry Conference
  • Applied Power Electronics Conference

In addition, the Society also sponsors the annual IEEE Industry Applications Conference, with sessions from over 25 diverse technical committees covering the complete spectrum of industry applications.

  1. Valuable professional publications :

IAS strengthens the professional knowledge connection by sponsoring a range of books and periodicals within its technical specialty. You may already be familiar with a few of the most notable: IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, a bimonthly publication available to members, documents original contributions to real-world applications of electrical and electronic apparatus and systems in Industry. IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, also a membership benefit, publishes news of upcoming conferences and meetings, calls for papers, awards, conference highlights and news about members, as well as technical articles. The IAS is one of the principal contributors to IEEE Standards, and Working Groups are active all through the Society. One noteworthy example of IAS work is the IEEE Color Books, renowned as a major resource for design of industrial and commercial power systems.

  1. A chance to advance your industry :

The opportunity to personally contribute to the betterment of your industry is a key IAS member benefit. Committees within IAS play a central role in establishing over 25% of all IEEE industry standards. Four technical departments, each serving a key segment of industry, bring professionals together to advance the interests of the field as a whole. Through these activities, individual members gain the satisfaction of knowing their efforts will contribute to a more productive and safer industrial environment for the generations to come.
