TTTC’s goals are to contribute to its members’ professional development and advancement, to help them solve engineering problems in electronic test, and to help advance the state-of-the art. All TTTC activities are led by volunteer members.

Membership in TTTC is open to all individuals interested in test engineering at a professional level. There are NO dues for TTTC membership and noparent-organization membership requirements; however, there are substantial reductions in fees for TTTC-sponsored meetings and tutorials for members of IEEE and/or IEEE Computer Society. (IEEE and IEEE/CS do have member fees.)

In addition to the benefits of personal association with other test professionals and the opportunity to serve on a wide range of committees, TTTC members receive TTTC Newsletters and announcements. TTTC sponsors a numberof Technical Activity Committees that address emerging test technologytopics. These TACs guide a wide range of activities in their topic areas, including standards activities and technical meetings.

Under TAC guidance, TTTC initiates, nurtures and encourages new test standards. TTTC-initiated groups have produced numerous IEEE standards, including the 1149 series used throughout the industry. TTTC also sponsorsseveral well-known conferences and symposia and holds numerous regional and topical workshops. In addition to spreading technical knowledge abouttest, TTTC meetings help advance the state-of-the-art. TTTC also sponsors tutorials on current and emerging test topics in conjunction with its largermeetings.

The TTTC Web Site at offers samples of the TTTC Newsletter, information about technical activities, conferences, workshops and standards, and gives links to the Web pages of a number of TTTC-sponsored technical meetings as well as a link to a membership home page directory.
