On January 1, 1963, when AIEE and IRE merged into the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the Seattle sections of AIEE and IRE also joined together and become –The Seattle Section of IEEE.
The members of IEEE Seattle have continuously innovated and played key roles in launching the digital age, the information age, and the cyber age.
To commemorate our founding fathers’ monumental impact on human life through their invention of telephone -first communication device, phonograph- first sound recording and replaying device, first radio and their dedication to electrical engineering profession, 130 years later, today, in this wireless mobile communication age we are launching the “IEEE Seattle 110th Anniversary Mobile APP Competition.”
We plan to offer top awards such as the “Thomas Edison Award”, the “Alexander Graham Bell Award”, and the “Guglielmo Marconi Award.” Various additional awards will also be given out in sponsors’ names at the Oct 19, 2014 IEEE 110th Anniversary Gala at the Pacific Science Center.
In the spring of 1884, the American Institute of Electrical Engineers-the AIEE-was founded in New York. AIEE’s founding fathers include Thomas Edison, the creator of the light bulb and phonograph, and Alexander Graham Bell, who refined Edison’s phonograph and invented the telephone. Together, they fostered this new organization to support professionals in their nascent field and aid them in applying innovation for the betterment of humanity. Together, they revolutionized the world with their technical creativity.
|STUDENT LEAGUE COMPETITION RULES|
Student League competition Guidelines,
Peoples’ Choice Awards categories: These awards will be based on audience voting at the final event. Votes will be collected from industry experts, your peers and others who attend the IEEE Seattle 110th year anniversary gala.
Judges’ Awards Category: These awards will go to the app that is picked as the judge’s favorites based on several subjective criteria including: quality of the user experience and interface design, quality of the implementation and usefulness of the app and the market impact. Judge will pick the winning team during team presentations in the afternoon of the day of the Gala Sunday ,Oct 19th.
Judged Sustainability and humanitarian Awards Category : These awards will go to the app that is picked as the judge’s favorite showcasing sustainability and used for humanitarian purpose. Apps qualifying for this category shall demonstrate the goal of benefit environmental and humanitarian causes.

IEEE Seattle section heard the shocking news of campus shooting at Seattle Pacific University. We extend our sympathy, prayer and support to the entire Seattle pacific Community. Our Condolences and prayers go to Victims, their families and their friends.
Our webmaster of IEEE Seattle Pacific University student branch , Jon Meis tackled the 26-year-old gunman Aaron Ybarra, who was not a student, and hitting him with pepper spray while he was reloading a shotgun. Ybarra had already injured several victims, one of whom died. Jon Meis put the alleged gunman in a chokehold and held him on the ground until police arrived.
We are proud of our heroic member, Jon Meis. All of us, members of IEEE , we pledge to be leaders to bring peace to our community and the world.

|Here are a few photos from our IEEE branch’s field trip to the Spark Museum last Saturday. Nine of us drove up to Bellingham for the day and got to see a wide array of electrical devices. It was great to see many of the first electrical inventions that paved the way for the EE degree that we are working toward today.
The CEO of the museum, John Jenkins, gave us a tour and showed us his private collection of books that he keeps locked away. They contained some of the first recorded electrical experiments and formulas like Ohm’s Law!I would highly recommend stopping by if you are ever in the area!.
