The IET offers two types of membership: individual membership and library-only membership.
The main requirement to become a member, in any category, is that you agree to comply with the IET Royal Charter and Bye-laws and Rules of Conduct. By agreeing to these, you are providing assurance of your professionalism and your ethical and moral conduct to your clients, colleagues and employers.
The IET has five categories of individual membership.
Each category of membership has been developed to support our members throughout their career providing a professional home for life. If you are unsure which membership category to choose, please select the description below that applies to you the most:
If you are a final year student or have graduated within the last five years you may be eligible for our IET Advantage membership programme - for early career engineers - for which there is a separate membership application process.

Additional services such as copies of articles and search enquiries can be purchased at member rates. View the Library and Archive page, for further information on Library services.
The IET has partnerships with various businesses, organisations and universities. View more information on business partners.
