IEEE Victorian Section History
The Victorian Section is part of Region 10, and is represnted at the Australia Council. Up until its formation it was orginally part of the original Australia Section. The geographic area responsibility of this section covers Victoria and Tasmania, with most activity around the city of Melbourne. On 10 April 2009, Lewis Terman advised the IEEE Tasmania Subsection of the Victorian Section in Region 10 was formed.
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.
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.
THE IEEE Australia-New Zealand Student Congress (ANZSCON) was held in Melbourne from 24-26 November 2010. This inaugural event was designed to promote networking and interaction between IEEE student members from Australia and New Zealand. Distinguished guests included Joseph V. Lillie, IEEE Treasurer and Executive Committee member, and Gordon W. Day, IEEE President-Elect for 2011.
