IEEE Texas Technical Tour (Start)

Texas is the home to a number of centers of technical excellence of national importance, as well as several key IEEE historical awards celebrating technological breakthroughs.  These will form the basis of a number of technology oriented visits throughout Texas organized by the San Antonio Life Member’s Group.  Our primary focus will be on IEEE Life Members and their spouses.

This tour will mirror previous IEEE Life Member tours of the past: Panama Canal, England/Scotland, Japan, Canada, etc.
