As a not-for-profit organisation, IET offers the maintenance of professional engineering standards. As a global network, the institution disseminates knowledge and information to its 150,000 members in 127 countries and through 100 local networks in 34 countries, including India.
Through its India local network, IET promotes engineering and technology and seeks to raise awareness of the profession, which occupies the centre-stage of a nation’s economic development spawning infrastructure, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, services and healthcare among others to improve living standards.
In association with the Engineering Council UK, the regulatory authority for registration of professional engineers and technicians in Britain, IET will offer its Indian chapter members an assessment opportunity to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng), Engineering Technical (EngTech) or ICT Technician (ICTTech).
Besides recognition of one’s expertise and hard work, the benefits of professional engineering qualification for Indian engineers are bright career prospects, greater influence within their organisation and industry and access to life-long learning.
With about 2,500 members, IET’s India chapter plans to work with academia, research and development (R&D) organisations, large industries and manufacturing firms and state-run enterprises to create an eco-system for building high quality engineers and leverage the latest developments in science and technology to produce a world class talent pool.
