Mike Short, IET President for 2011/12, describes the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) as a professional home for life. It provides an unrivalled range of services and support, invaluable for the next generation of engineers and technicians.
IET membership offers you a complete package, even if you regard yourself as a developer, analyst or programmer. There are information resources on a wide variety of technology/engineering sectors, and a free subscription to the topical and highly accessible E&T magazine. You will save 35% off IET books, and that includes the IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671). There is a library research service, where information professionals will help with any research enquiry. You will also have access to a world-class array of printed and digital material. The IET provides access to a free legal helpline and outplacement services for members and their dependents, giving individual advice in times of crisis. You can also obtain official qualifications (and designatory letters) to help your long-term career prospects and really make you stand out as a professional.
