ACM vs. IEEE

Which is better for upcoming IT professionals?

Now that college is under way and students are looking for a place to turn to get into OUR industry…. what’s the BEST place to show the next class of IT professionals the way?

Should they get into the IEEE?

Or is the ACM more beneficial for IT Pros?

Cast your vote…

Let your peers and upcoming employees know where they should turn now (results will be posted later)…

Btw, if you have a write in group that you think is better, let us know as well!!

    Josh,

    Both organizations are very good. To young professionals, I advise to keep up with both. Over time, they will gravitate toward one or the other depending on who is delivering better value and who is more aligned to their interests.

    I think IEEE is more good. because IEEE have more diversification in their knowledge sharing. But of course ACM having their own specifications.

    Well, any professional would stand to gain from both! Both are good..
    however as someone pointed out, IEEE has the advantage as it is highly diversified.

    I’ve come across that now, more and more people are attracted to cameras and the industry of images. However, being a photographer, you need to first invest so much time period deciding which model of digital camera to buy and also moving from store to store just so you may buy the most affordable camera of the trademark you have decided to choose. But it doesn’t
    end there. You also have to contemplate whether you
    should purchase a digital video camera extended warranty.
    Thanks a bunch for the good guidelines I accumulated from your blog.
