Are you currently serving and ready to apply for professional registration?

If you are submitting an application for professional registration at the same time, or soon after, becoming a new member of the IET, we recommend joining as an Associate member. Upon successful election to professional registration, your membership category will automatically be upgraded to the relevant membership category (TMIET or MIET). Please download the application form below, or alternatively, you can call our join team on +44(0)1438 767648 who will be able to take your details and join you over the phone.

Please note the TMIET and MIET are assessed levels of Membership. IET Membership assessment is a separate process to that for Engineering Council UK professional registration (CEng, IEng, EngTech, ICTTech). If you are also wishing to apply for professional registration, please follow the relevant links to you on the navigation panel to the left.
