The IEEE South Australia Section was chartered in 1986 with Dr Don Sinnott (now FIEEE) the Foundation Chair. Since that time it has grown steadily in membership and activity from 154 (1987) to more than 400 today (see Membership statistics). It is one of the smaller Sections numerically within Australia, and is larger than Nth Queensland and ACT Sections.

The SA Section has won the Region 10 small section award twice since the inception of that award, in 2005 and 2007.


The IEEE Power & Energy Society Chapter was established in February 2014.
