Events and worldwide networking opportunities for engineers and technologists in North America, South and Central America, the Caribbean, and Greenland.

The IET welcomes engineers and technologists throughout the Americas to join its geographic and technical communities and participate in events and other activities.

About the Americas Region

With 3500 members in North America, Central and South America, and the Caribbean there are six established networks in the region, two joint chartered groups, a young member group at Purdue University, and a growing list of new communities. The Communities Committee - Americas (CC-A) is responsible for and supports the development of existing and new communities in the region.

The IET has communities in New England (Boston and NYC), California (LA and San Diego), Texas (Houston and Austin), Florida (Tampa), Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and the Caribbean (Trinidad) .  We also have two joint groups with other engineering institutions in Calgary (Central Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers) and in Vancouver (Western Canada Group of Chartered Engineers).     We have a Young Member group at Purdue University and new communities being formed in the Rocky Mountain states, Northern California (San Francisco), and Chesapeake (Washington DC).  If you would like to join in any of our communities, please click on the links below to get in touch with the members in these regions.

The IET awards more UK professional registrations than any other organization. The Chartered Engineer professional registration is the highest level awarded by the Engineering Council and it is recognized globally. The IET is committed to help our members with their professional registration and has staff and international professional registration advisors (IPRAs) in the Americas region available to assist our members. Please contact the professional registration team for more information.

IET USA Inc. (a subsidiary of the IET) is located in Edison, New Jersey and acts as the sales and marketing arm for IET publishing products in the Americas.
