Founded in 1953, The Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE) is a leading professional society devoted to the advancement of science and technology of "Electronics, Telecommunications and IT". IETE serves its 45,000 members both individuals and industries / organizations through its 41 centres spread all over India and abroad.
Phenomenal developments in telecommunications and electronics in many countries were already influencing independent India engaged in its gigantic nation building efforts in 1947. The existing professional or scientific bodies in India at that time were not able to pay adequate attention to nurture and grow these specialized engineering areas at a rapid pace as required by the country. The need for a separate professional institution which could bring together various individuals or groups working in these areas become acute in the early '50s, as India launched its programme of national development through five-year plans. It was visualized at that time that such an institution could cope with the rapid developments in the above fields coordinate and disseminate technical knowledge, facilitate exchange of views among the members, publish results of their work, lay down standards to guide the budding engineers in their aspirations to professional status and also serve as a focal point for the orderly growth of this specialized branch in the country. Although, proposals for forming such an institution had been made by several seniors in the profession from time in the earlier years, their efforts finally met with success when the Articles of Association of The Institution of Telecommunication Engineers (name by which IETE was known then) was signed on 01 October 1953. The first President being Shri B R Batra, Chief Engineer Posts & Telegraph department, New Delhi.
Govt. of India, Ministry of Science and Technology & Department of Science & Industrial Research has recognised IETE as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (SIRO).
IETE has been notified as an educational Institution of National Eminence by the Government of India, Ministry of Finance.
