“I’ve been completely supported within my IET career journey. It’s the largest engineering Institution in the United Kingdom and it is not just an institute for one type of engineer but an institute for all engineers. I found it the most welcoming, most friendly and really informative.”

Craig Maclean MIET

“My IET membership has helped me overcome challenges in my role and career and given me this new professional family where I can reach out to people and ask questions. That is really invaluable because journeys can be lonely in different ways and being able to have a network that you can reach out to has been really helpful.”

Ama Frimpong MIET

“IET membership has definitely opened up opportunities that would not otherwise have been available to me.”
