Computer Society of India(CSI)
The Computer Society of India, formed in 1965, has been instrumental in facilitating research, information-sharing, learning and career enhancement for all categories of IT professionals while simultaneously integrating new entrants into the IT community. Today it has all over India, 66 chapters, 381 student branches and 40,000+ members. CSI-JMI, the student chapter in Jamia Millia Islamia, was formed by students of the Dept. of Computer Engineering, in 2002 under the mentorship of Dr. M.N. Doja, also the present Branch Co-ordinator, and Md. Sohrabuddin. Initially starting with 75 members, CSI-JMI has today, grown to a community of 350 students, and had recently organized the 10th edition of its annual techno-cultural festival, ALGORHYTHM, under the able guidance of Mr. Tanvir Ahmad, the present Branch Counsellor. On the occasion each year, CSI-JMI also releases its annual magazine, FICTION, featuring articles, essays, reviews and opinions on a wide spectrum of issues. An off-shoot of CSI-JMI, the JMI Linux User Group (JMILUG), pivotal in inculcating an interest in LINUX in the student community, also holds its annual conference during the festival. The festival had been host to RJ Rahul Makin and saw a stand-up act by Dr. Kumar Vishwas. The society has continuously strived to promote and develop an inclusive atmosphere and to provide opportunities for its members to participate in workshops, lectures and seminars. It has arranged C-language and Java classes for the students in the summer break and had recently organized a Drupal meet-up. A 2-day workshop on “Ethical Hacking & Information Security”, by Kyrion Technologies, was held in January, 2011. A trip to the Adventure Island had been arranged for its members in October 2010, while events such as English extempore, Face painting, Rangoli-making and Treasure hunt are organized on a regular basis. The society plans to bring about its newsletter in the near future, as well as implement other projects in the pipeline. With strong member strength and a pool of talent, CSI-JMI is on its way to realise and bring about opportunities essential for the all-round nurturing of the student.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers or IEEE is an international non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of technology for the benefit of humanity. It has the most members of any technical professional organization in the world, with more than 365,000 members in around 150 countries.
Its constitution defines the purposes of the organization as "scientific and educational, directed toward the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical, electronics, communications and computer engineering, as well as computer science.
In pursuing these goals, the IEEE serves as a major publisher of scientific journals and also as a conference organizer. It is also a leading developer of industrial standards (having developed over 900 active industry standards) in a broad range of disciplines, including electric power and energy, biomedical technology and healthcare, information technology, information assurance, telecommunications, consumer electronics, transportation, aerospace, and nanotechnology.
IEEE produces 30 percent of the world's literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, publishing well over 100 peer-reviewed journals. Because of its global presence, the organization is divided into 10 Regions to ease the management of the organization with its headquarters being centered in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA. Region 10 or the Asia Pacific is the biggest among all the regions both in terms of area and membership figures. The Region is further divided into Councils. It houses 10 of the total 54 section that this Region has under it. Student Branch Activities in a Region and section are managed by respective Student Activities Committees (SAC). The Region 10 SAC is well known across IEEE for its innovative and ingenious projects and activities.
IEEE, Student branch, Jamia Millia Islamia, instituted eighteen years ago, in 1992 is one of the most prominent technical societies in India today. It was one of the first student branches to be commissioned under the Delhi Section. It forms an important part of the curriculum in engineering education and its vitality is marked by the bridge it acts as between students and professionals and all the latest developments and happenings in the world. IEEE JMI provides its members with an important link between just technical know-how and actual field practices.
IEEE JMI is one of the largest and the most active student branches today, catering to nearly hundred and fifty members. It has been recognized both within the country as well as internationally for its continuing efforts in the direction of technological progress and developments.
In 2001, the society was given new direction by Dr. Mini S.

- Women in Engineering
- Power and Energy Society
- Microwave Theory and Techniques Society
- The JMI Student Branch organized the Introductory GINI meet in 2009 for the introduction of the Global Integrated Network of IEEE(GINI) Concept in Delhi Section.
