How can Fellowship help you?

Our Fellows come from a wide range of backgrounds and roles with a common aspiration of promoting themselves and our industry to the wider world. As a Fellow you’ll benefit from: 

  • being able to use the FIET post-nominal letters after your name, as a clear statement of IET and peer recognition
  • having an internationally recognised accreditation (and a certificate)
  • increased recognition with employers
  • opportunities to shape the future of engineering by joining panels, events and discussions
  • being able to give back as a mentor or ambassador to young people
  • our exclusive Fellows LinkedIn group for global networking
  • invites to our Fellows only events, like our Fellow Networking Events.

Are you eligible?

All our Fellow applications are peer-reviewed, so you can feel confident you’re being assessed by a panel of your equals.

You’ll need to complete an application form that demonstrates that you fulfil at least two of the nine Fellowship criteria: creativity, enterprise, innovation, insight and experience, leadership, repute, responsibility, service, and influence and contribution.

You’ll find full details of what counts towards each criterion in our downloadable Criteria for Fellowship PDF guide. [PDF, 40KB]
