Student Membership

The IEEE Photonics Society opens the door to opportunities that will help you develop your professional identity in the photonics and optoelectronics fields. In addition to gaining a range of Student Membership benefits, you'll make global connections with other photonics professionals, academics and local IEEE Student Branches who can help you along your individual career path. The IEEE Photonics Society also offers various conference, publication, and online course discounts to Student Members as well as travel grants to sponsored conferences. 

Undergraduate or graduate students taking at least 50% of a normal full-time program/course of study in IEEE designated fields are eligible for Student Membership. Any student who is a Student Member of the IEEE may become a Student Member of the IEEE Photonics Society, with all of the privileges of membership except that Student Members may not vote in elections or serve on the Board of Governors.
