"I've long felt that the engineering profession in the UK is very fragmented and that consolidation will give it a more powerful voice. A broader based body allows us all to benefit from the cross fertilisation of ideas and maintain a strength and depth of knowledge for those working in specialist areas."

"The IET has been key throughout my career and this proposal is fundamentally important. I work in the IT sector and the IET, from its position at the forefront of technology, is helping to shape this profession in such a way that the people working in it receive credibility and recognition."

Engineers need forums like this where they can access internationally ground breaking research and leading-edge technical developments."
