United Kingdom - Local Networks

The Local Networks throughout the UK provide like-minded people with opportunities to share ideas, collaborate, learn and network.

Our communities organise lectures, seminars, technical visits and webinars on a range of subjects that enable you to learn and network with people within your local geographic area. You can choose to interact at local events, or on the IET’s very own online networking service, Engineering Communities. .

Get involved in a community near you by selecting a Network below; where you can search for events in your local area, share your ideas in a discussion or blog and make connections with people in your region.
