IEEE Texas Panhandle Section

About Us

Section History

Our Section began as the Panhandle-Plains Section of the AIEE (A predecessor organization of the IEEE) over fifty years ago. That Section was the result of EEs located primarily in Amarillo and Lubbock in the Panhandle of Texas. As years passed the members of the original AIEE Section split into two separate Sections of the IEEE- first, the Panhandle Section in Amarillo, and later, the South Plains Section in Lubbock.

The Panhandle Section thrived with great support from local businesses that took a strong supportive role in making their employee Engineers aware of the IEEE and encouraging and supporting membership in the Panhandle Section.

The IEEE History Center is a not-for-profit organization which relies on your support to preserve, research, and promote the legacy of electrical engineering and computing.
