About IEEE

IEEE, being the world’s largest technical professional society, is continuously promoting the development and application of electrotechnology and allied sciences for the benefit of humanity and for the advancement of the profession. With the 4,30,000 members spanning across 165 countries of the globe, IEEE fosters the development of standards, that often became national and international standards and produces over 30% of the world’s literature in its related fields, publishing well over 100 peer- reviewed journals.


LINK is an innovative concept that originated in IEEE Kerala Section in India, aimed at networking student branches in an effective way, thereby increasing the value in IEEE Student membership. LINK was formally inaugurated by past IEEE President Mr. Cleon Anderson in January 2005. Since its inception LINK has achieved tremendous results, causing an exponential increase in student branches and student activities in IEEE Kerala Section over the years. The model of link was adopted by IEEE Region 10 as R10 GINI (Global Integrated Network of IEEE Students). The founders of LINK went on to receive the MGA innovation award in 2008.
