The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is a professional association for electronic engineering and electrical engineering (and related disciplines) with its corporate office in New York City. It was formed in 1963 from the amalgamation of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE, founded in 1884) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE, founded in 1912).

The IEEE is known for its development of standards in the electronics and electrical engineering fields. It is the world's largest association of technical professionals with more than 400,000 members in over 160 countries. The organization's objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering, and allied disciplines.

IEEE publishes a significant amount of the electrical engineering and computer science literature in the world, including approximately 200 transactions, journals, and magazines. It also sponsors over 1,800 conferences and events annually. The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) develops global standards in a broad range of industries, including power and energy, biomedical and healthcare, information technology, telecommunications, transportation, nanotechnology, information assurance, and many others, playing a vital role in enabling the development, sharing, and use of technology and technological information.

Some of the most well known standards that have been created by the IEEE include:
