IEEE Hyderabad Section is one of the most active sections of IEEE in India. IEEE was formally introduced in Hyderabad, in June 1981, when a group of engineers in Hyderabad decided to form an IEEE sub-Section here. This sub-Section was rapidly elevated to a full Section, in 1984 (the year of IEEE Centenary celebrations). All IEEE members, residing in the state of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, India, are automatically members of the IEEE Hyderabad Section. Our strength (in numbers) is 3707 members (as on 09 Feb. 2010). The section has NINE chapters – Computer Society (CS), Communication/SP Societies, Computational Intelligence/Geoscience and Remote Sensing Societies, CAS/EDS, Education Society, MTT/AP/EMC Societies, PES/IAS/PELS, Photonics Society, Technology and Engineering Management Society chapters.
The Student Branch took its birth in the year 2006 December with branch strength of 42 members. It started of its operations by conducting weekly activities in the college and using the events as a platform to promote IEEE within the college. In 2007, the student branch picked up on the activities rate by conducting them regularly; it ensured healthy participation from the students within the college. Student Branch gained momentum in 2008 as the member intake increased that particular year and it went on to conduct a workshop and a national level technical fest that year.
The student branch in that particular year also started communicating with the section and was volunteering at the section activities also. It also participated in the All India Student Project Contest (organized by IEEE-Hyderabad Section) in that particular year and won the first prize.
