The IET Strategy

Our Vision

Working to engineer a better world.

Our Mission

To inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community, supporting technology innovation to meet the needs of society.

Our Strategic Priorities

Support the transition of students and young professionals into engineering careers

To encourage a pipeline of future engineers, we work with educational stakeholders to promote engineering as an inspiring career choice. In order to achieve this goal, we deliver a range of services and scholarships to support engineering and technology students throughout their education.

Engagement with professional development to ensure and demonstrate and grow engineering competency

Professionalism is at the heart of our activities and as a result, we are committed to providing our members with access to relevant and cutting edge topics to further their learning and professional development.

Deliver user-centric knowledge solutions for rapid access to relevant content and services

Creating and sharing engineering technology knowledge is central to how we deliver public benefit. We track emergent technologies and support the publication and use of the research to achieve this.

Demonstrating the public relevance of engineering to society and as a positive career choice

We promote engineering and technology as a positive and fulfilling career choice to young people. We provide thought leadership and policy influence to deliver better engineering solutions to society.

Working across disciplinary, corporate and geographic boundaries to improve innovation and impact

We deliver impact through working internationally; with our volunteers, sister PEIs, academia, industry, government and others to promote the contribution of professional engineering.
