The IEEE ComSoc Young Professionals group provides a “technical haven” within IEEE for the graduate students and early to mid-career professionals, who have graduated from their first professional degree within the past 15 years. It is an international community, whose members are interested in elevating their professional image, expanding their global network, connecting with peers locally and giving back to their community. This includes professionals from various sectors of the communications engineering field such as academia, industry, governmental agencies, and the startup community. These groups of vibrant young minds, who are gearing up to shape and lead their organizations, actively contribute as members to both IEEE ComSoc and the IEEE Young Professionals.
