In an increasingly competitive job market, employers are hiring graduates who’ve taken the time to raise their profile by developing their interests and skills outside of their course.

If you’re an ambitious student, the IET is looking to support you in your extracurricular activities. If you’re planning on becoming an engineer or technician, we’re determined to help give you a competitive edge. This is why we’ve developed IET On Campus, an initiative that gives you the resources, connections, support and inspiration you need to launch yourself into your career with confidence - accessible at your university and supported by your peers.

IET On Campus is designed to support everyone in the engineering faculty with students at the heart of it. Your community can call on a wealth of tailored practical, technical and career-related resources that provide you with access to knowledge from across industry and academia. We will help you create links with employers and other universities, building a platform for you to demonstrate your skills and raise your profile to the wider world.

By engaging with IET On Campus, you’ll grow your social circle with people who share your passion and curiosity for engineering and technology. It’s the perfect chance to pass your enthusiasm on to others and help us develop more people’s futures on campus.
