About IEEE GOLD Western Australia

The Western Australian GOLD focuses on the specific needs of recent graduates in Western Australia. We aim to organise social/ networking, professional skills development events as well as opportunities to satisfy our common fascination with new technology and gadgets.


In 1996, IEEE instituted efforts to explore how to improve the retention and better meet the needs of recently graduated Student members. The concept of developing a peer group evolved and was named GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade). The GOLD group is defined as post-student members who are within ten years of receiving their first professional degree.

The most important action for GOLD members was to promote the concept at the local level. In 1998, the IEEE approved the formation of non-technical groups called Affinity Groups. Affinity Groups are formed under the joint supervision of the local Section and parent entity (GOLD, Women in Engineering, Consultants' Network). Since the inception of Affinity Groups, GOLD members have embraced this concept and formalized GOLD Affinity Groups worldwide. Many varied activities, both social and community minded, are planned and organized by this group to meet and interact with their peers.

IEEE GOLD empowers young graduates to make the most of their developing career and to help them find a place in the world of technology.
