Develop your career in the built environment

The built environment champions the physical environments that people need to work, rest and play, including offices, homes, services and open spaces. Combining engineering and technology and inspired by issues of the day and innovation, the built environment tackles the biggest challenges impacting our world today.

Whether it’s to reach net-zero goals, halve building energy use, or retrofit homes, engineers must work together to understand infrastructure and deliver outcomes for the people and the wider environment.

By joining a multidisciplinary, professional engineering institution such as the IET, you can keep up to date with industry developments, learn skills that are in demand and build your reputation in this dynamic sector.
