There are several grades of membership in RAS and IEEE. Read below and follow the links to learn more about the different grades of membership.

Member

Nearly two-thirds of RAS members fall into this category of membership. Practing engineers and academics that have not met or applied for Senior Member are in this category. Learn more about RAS Member benefits.

Affiliate Member

Affiliate members are RAS members that are not IEEE members. They do not receive IEEE benefits, but receive RAS benefits. 

Student Member

Students are eligible for the Student Member grade. Student members pay reduced fees for membership, and often receive discounts and special support at RAS conferences and events. Learn more about RAS Student Memberships.

Graduate Student Member

Our graduate students fall into the Graduate Student Member grade. They are eligible for the same discounts as Student Members, but the Graduate Student Member grade reflects the advanced nature of their studies. 

Senior Member

The Senior Member grade is a granted by the IEEE. Senior member is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply. IEEE members can self-nominate, or be nominated, for Senior member grade.  Learn more about IEEE Senior Members

Life Member

A special IEEE membership designation given to individuals based on years of IEEE membership and their age. Learn more about IEEE Life Membership Grade.

Fellow

IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation. Learn more about IEEE Fellow Membership Grade

The IEEE Young Professionals (formerly GOLD—Graduates of the Last Decade) is a program to help members (with at least one engineering-relevant degree) transitioning to young professionals and accomplish their early career goals.  

Under the umbrella of IEEE, this is a vibrant community of engineers, scientists and technical experts with representation across the globe, and now the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) is further empowering young professionals through the creation of a RAS Young Professionals (YP) group.

RAS YP naturally focuses on robotics. Organized activities will emphasize on learning about new skills as an independent researcher, such as time and lab management, balancing teaching/research; grant writing, networking; developing new research project, as while as opportunities and paths to leadership positions on Journal/conference editorial boards and technical committees. In the meanwhile, the YP also supports its members on the industrial career track, and organizes specific industrial forums, job fairs, and webinars. Furthermore, with the rising trend of robotics-related start-ups, young entrepreneurs may also find various supporting programs organized by YP.

RAS hosts Young Professionals Luncheons at two of their annual conferences, ICRA (IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation) and IROS (IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems). It presents an opportunity for professional development as well as an introduction to RAS. Further activities are realized in conjunction with other RAS bodies, including the Conferences Activities Board and the Conference Editorial Board; Member Activities Board, Local Chapters and Technical Committees.

RAS puts great emphasis on supporting Young Professionals in the society, across all spectrums. Become a member today!
