AIEE,全称American Institute of Electrical Engineers,美国电气工程师协会。AIEE于1963年1月1日,和IRE(无线电工程师协会)合并成立IEEE(美国电气和电子工程师协会)。

协会简介

IEEE的前身AIEE(美国电气工程师协会)成立于1884年,和IRE(无线电工程师协会)成立于1912年。AIEE的兴趣主要是有线通讯(电报和电话),照明和电力系统。IRE关心的多是无线电工程,它由2个更小的组织组成, 无线和电报工程师协会和无线电协会。随着1930年代电子学的兴起, 电气工程大抵上也成了IRE的成员,但是电子管技术的应用变得如此广泛以至于IRE和AIEE领域边界变得越来越模糊。二战以后,两个组织竞争日益加剧1961年两个组织的领导人果断决定将二者合并,终于1963年1月1日合并成立IEEE。

IEEE(美国电气电子工程师学会)于1963年1月1日由AIEE(美国电气工程师学会)和IRE(美国无线电工程师学会)合并而成,是美国规模最大的专业学会。IEEE是一个非营利性科技学会,拥有全球近175个国家三十六万多名会员。透过多元化的会员,该组织在太空、计算机、电信、生物医学、电力及消费性电子产品等领域中都是主要的权威。在电气及电子工程、计算机及控制技术领域中,IEEE 发表的文献占了全球将近百分之三十。IEEE每年也会主办或协办三百多项技术会议。

Foundation of the AIEE (AIEE的创立)

In the spring of 1884, a small group of individuals in the electrical professions met in New York. They formed a new organization to support professionals in their nascent field and to aid

them in their efforts to apply innovation for the betterment of humanity—the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, or AIEE for short. That October the AIEE held its first technical meeting in Philadelphia, Pa. Many early leaders, such as founding President Norvin Green of Western Union, came from telegraphy. Others, such as Thomas Edison, came from power, while Alexander Graham Bell represented the newer telephone industry. As electric power spread rapidly across the land—enhanced by innovations such as Nikola Tesla’s AC Induction Motor, long distance AC transmission and large-scale power plants, and commercialized by industries such as Westinghouse and General Electric—the AIEE became increasingly focused on electrical power and its ability to change people’s lives through the unprecedented products and services it could deliver. There was a secondary focus on wired communication, both the telegraph and the telephone. Through technical meetings, publications, and promotion of standards, the AIEE led the growth of the electrical engineering profession, while through local sections and student branches, it brought its benefits to engineers in widespread places.
