IET - The Institution of Engineering and Technology

IET, also known as The Institution of Engineering and Technology, is a professional society for engineers and other technology specialists. The IET's 150,000 members come from 127 countries and are served by offices located in North America, Europe, and Asia.

About the IET

In March of 2006, the Institution of Electrical Engineers and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers joined together to form the IET. This organization is responsible for holding over 120 events and conferences each year. In addition, the IET publishes numerous (over one hundred) magazines, journals, and books. One of the magazines is entitled "Flipside," and is geared toward teens. The IET is also responsible for publishing the IEE Wiring Regulations for each year.

IET Offers Scholarship Opportunities

Engineering and IT students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels may qualify for scholarships offered by IET. In addition to financial assistance offered to students, IET also offers travel awards to help defray the cost of attending international conferences and work programs abroad.

Approved Electrician Apprenticeships and the IET

If you are an employer, offering IET-approved apprenticeships means that you will be able to attract more candidates to your apprenticeship scheme. Your company name will be included on IET's list of approved apprenticeship schemes and help you develop employees with the desired electrical qualifications.

Once you have been approved by IET, any person who decides to apprentice with your company will have obtained the skills necessary to qualify as an Engineering Technician (EngTech). Getting approved is a simple process, and IET provides free support to help you go through the process to get the necessary approval. Employers are encouraged to become members of IET so that they can support their apprentices.


EngTech Qualifications

Acquiring your EngTech qualifications tells a prospective employer that you are a highly skilled and have significant experience in your field. Once you have successfully completed an approved apprenticeship scheme, you are eligible to apply for your Fast Track EngTech qualifications.

A form will need to be filled in and you will need to supply some supporting documentation. As part of the requirements, you will be expected to commit to ongoing professional development activities. You have the choice of submitting your own plan or following the Development Action Plan developed by IET. (You should plan on reaching your goals in the next 12-18 months.)

CEng (Chartered Engineer)

A CEng use their creativity to develop solutions to engineering problems. To accomplish this goal, they must possess both leadership ability and effective interpersonal skills.

In order to complete the CEng qualifications, you will need to demonstrate that you have demonstrated the required skills for 16 generic competences. In your application, you will need to provide supporting evidence for each one in turn.

IEng (Incorporated Engineer)

An Incorporated Engineer has the qualifications to manage engineering applications. They may be involved in design, construction, operations, manufacturing, or development tasks.

To obtain your IEng qualifications, you will need to provide evidence that you have demonstrated each of the 16 generic competencies listed in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UKSPEC).
