About The Illuminating Engineering Society

Established in 1906, the Illuminating Engineering Society (“the IES” or “the Society”) is the recognized technical and educational authority on illumination. For over 100 years, its objective has been to communicate information on all aspects of good lighting practice to its members, the lighting community and consumers through a variety of programs, publications, events and services.

The strength of the IES is its diverse membership of over 8,425 engineers, architects, designers, educators, students, contractors, distributors, utility personnel, manufacturers and scientists, in over 65 countries, all contributing to the mission of the Society.

The Society is a forum for the exchange of ideas and research and a vehicle for its members’ professional development and recognition. Through its technical committees, with hundreds of qualified members from the lighting and user communities, the IES correlates research, investigations, and discussions to guide lighting experts and laypersons via research and consensus-based lighting recommendations.
