About the Institution of Engineering and Technology

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 169,000 members in 150 countries. We are also the most multidisciplinary to reflect the increasingly diverse nature of modern engineering. Our mission is to inspire the next generation of engineers; inform our members and the wider engineering community; and influence Government, media and other stakeholders to support our message of the vital role engineering plays in today’s world. As a registered charity, we want to build the profile of engineering and change outdated perceptions in order to tackle the skills gap. This includes encouraging more women to become engineers, inspiring the next generation through education 5-19 initiatives, and growing the number of engineering apprentices.
