HYDERABAD is the Capital City of the State of Andhra Pradesh in India. The names: HYDERABAD and SECUNDERABAD are used interchangeably because they are "twin cities" which mutually flank each other.
The IEEE Hyderabad Section is one of the most active sections of the IEEE in India. IEEE was formally introduced into Hyderabad in June 1981, when a group of engineers in Hyderabad decided to form an IEEE sub-Section here.
This sub-Section was rapidly elevated to a full Section on 14 May 1984 (the year of IEEE Centenary celebrations).
All IEEE members, residing in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India, are automatically members of the IEEE Hyderabad Section. Our strength (in numbers) is 2323 members (as on 31 December 2007). The section has three chapters - Computer Society, PES/IAS and MTT/AP/EMC chapter. It has representation on the IEEE India Council.
On 17 April 2010, a joint chapter of IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Signal Processing Chapter was formed. The event was held at the University College of Engineering, Osmania University.
