The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is the largest multidisciplinary professional engineering institution in the world. The IET was formed in 2006 from two separate institutions: the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), dating back to 1871 and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) dating back to 1884. Its worldwide membership is currently in excess of 163,000. The IET’s main offices are in Savoy Place in London, England and at Michael Faraday House in Stevenage, England.
The IET has the authority to establish professional registration for the titles of Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer, Engineering Technician, and ICT Technician, as a Licensed Member institution of the Engineering Council. The IET is registered as a charity in England and Wales, and in Scotland.
The IET has a journals publishing program, totalling 24 titles as of March 2012 (with the addition of IET Biometrics and IET Networks). The journals contain both original and review-oriented papers relating to various disciplines in electrical, electronics, computing, control, biomedical and communications technologies.
Electronics Letters is a peer-reviewed rapid-communication journal, which publishes short original research papers every two weeks. Its scope covers developments in all electronic and electrical engineering related fields. Also available to Electronics Letters subscribers are something called the Insight Letters.
The IET student chapter of CET was formed in the year 2009
