Welcome to the official web page of the IEEE Young Professionals (YP) group of Victorian section, Australia. As an IEEE affinity group, we have a strong presence in Melbourne to support recently graduated IEEE members, bridging the gap between engineering student and professional engineer. We are an inspired and active team of volunteers who are working together with the industrial professionals to bring out technical seminars and awareness sessions, industrial tours, social and networking events etc. You are welcome to attend these events, even if you are not a current member of the IEEE or IEEE YP. Please refer our coming events. We do, however, encourage you to join the IEEE. Also if you are interested to join the team of active volunteers and to get leadership experience, please do not hesitate to contact us !

Since its launch in 1996, IEEE YP is always focused on providing young professionals with information, resources and opportunities for their skill and career development and social expansion. YP group always promotes a well-balanced professional life and operates around the non-technical aspects of engineering: professionalism, personal development, community involvement. The YP group of Victorian section was formed as an initiative by a few volunteers in the IEEE Victorian section. The group was formally approved on year 2013. Since then, the committee is working hard to create a platform to meet the experienced industrial mentors from different fields and exchange ideas that would lead towards technical and non-technical initiatives and collaborations. Also we always encourage the recent graduates to join with us to develop leadership skills and ability to work in teams. We always believe interacting with peers and mentors having different experience and knowledge, helps us keep ourselves updated with latest happenings, trends and career opportunities in the field.
Our vision – IEEE GOLD will be a global community of enthusiastic, dynamic and innovative young professionals engaged for the benefit of humanity
Our mission – To inspire, energize, empower young professionals to envision and realize their dreams
