11 Member Benefits Staying Technically Current Standards The IEEE is a leading developer of standards that underpin many of todays technologies. Our standards are developed in a unique environment that builds consensus in an open process based on input from all interested parties. With nearly 1,300 standards either completed or under development, we are a central source of standardization in both traditional and emerging fields, particularly telecommunications, information technology and power generationstandards

12 Member Benefits Staying Technically Current Other Publications l Ready Notes l Publications for < $19.00 ea. l Check l E-B00KS l Download publications for < $5.00 ea. l Check

13 Member Benefits Staying Technically Current IEEE Survey Publications are great –But way too expensive! IEEE Explore –Make IEEE Xplore part of the membership, one member wrote. I would not use it often, but on occasion I would love to have access to articles in IEEE publications and conference proceedings. The free access could be limited, for example, to no more than five to 10 publications a month. Heavy users would pay for their extra burden on the service. –Another offered up the iTunes model of charging 99 cents a download. Offer dirt-cheap prices to download technical publications, so I could casually read them to broaden my technical skills. Right now I have to be darn certain a publication is going to be directly useful to consider buying it. –Last week: One month FREE trial!

IEEE Life Member Affinity Groups. Life Member Fund Grants. l IEEE Life Member Newsletters - semi-annually.

28 Member Benefits Career Development & Recognition Professional Engineer (PE) IEEE is an Authorized Provider of CEUs through The International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACE) and has adopted IACET guidelines and criteria for all its continuing professional development programs IEEE Offers P.E. Review CD-ROM to prepare for the exams

29 Benefits of Licensure Regardless of the career path you choose to take, there are a number of practical considerations concerning licensure of which you should be aware: l Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work for public and private clients. l Licensure for individuals who wish to pursue a career as a consulting engineer or a private practitioner is not something that is merely desirable; it is a legal requirement for those who are in responsible charge of work, be they principals or employees. l Licensure for engineers in government has become increasingly significant. Many federal, state, and municipal agencies require that certain governmental engineering positions, particularly those considered higher level and responsible positions, be filled only by licensed professional engineers. l For those considering a career in education, many states have been increasingly requiring that those individuals teaching engineering must be licensed. Exemptions to state laws are under attack, and in the future, those in education, as well as industry and government, may need to be licensed to practice. Also, licensure helps educators prepare students for their future in engineering l With the growing complexity and the increasing diversity of modern construction processes and techniques, the engineer in construction must readily be able to communicate and exchange ideas and views with other licensed design engineers

30 Benefits of Licensure l For those pursuing careers in industry, licensure has recently taken on increased meaning with heightened public attention concerning product safety, environmental issues, and design defects. Employers have found it advantageous to identify to the courts and the public those employees who have met at least a minimum level of competence l Engineers in the military must have the credentials to stay with the service in the face of downsizing or to make the transition to the private sector. l The scope of engineering practice is constantly changing, and engineering activities that may be exempt today may eventually shift into a practice area that one day requires a license (for example, research and development may find practical application in the facilities design/construction process, requiring the practitioner to be licensed). l State engineering boards are increasingly seeking and obtaining the authority to impose civil penalties against unlicensed individuals who unlawfully engage in the practice of engineering. l Engineers must adapt to a rapidly changing workplace-restructuring, downsizing, outsourcing, privatization, and re-engineering. Engineers should prepare to make the transition into a consulting relationship with former employers and clients in the event of a corporate outsourcing and respond if their corporation decides to bring design and engineering services in-house. Only by becoming licensed can an engineer perform the broad scope of engineering services within an area of competence as defined under state law. Borrowed from:
