We encourage Rochester  IEEE members to consider upgrading their membership to Senior Member if they qualify.  Only 8% of IEEE’s approximately 400,000 members hold this grade.  Being honored  as a Senior Member requires extensive experience and documented achievements of significance.

  • be engineers, scientists, educators, technical executives, or originators in IEEE-designated fields;
  • have experience reflecting professional maturity;
  • have been in professional practice for at least 10 years;
  • show significant performance over a period of at least 5 of their years in professional practice.
