Background

The responsibility of this section covers the geographical area of Victoria and Tasmania, with most activity around the city of Melbourne

Sub-Section

The IEEE Victorian Section began originally as a sub-section in 1975 to the then ‘Australia Section’. It was primarily driven by staff from the now historic Telecom Australia (Telstra) Research Laboratories located in Clayton. 

The 1975 IEEE President, Arthur Stern, visited Australia in October 1975. In late 1975, as a result of an earlier petition, the Victorian Sub-Section was formed. The Victorian sub-section was active for around 3 years, and then became dormant.

Section

The old sub-section was rejuvenated and was re-formed as a Section on 12 August 1983.

Colin Kline was the first Student Branch Councillor at the Ballarat College of Advanced Education (now known as the University of Ballarat), circa 1983.
