The IET aims to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world. On our stand at Advanced Engineering we have staff (and some member volunteers) happy to talk about membership, professional qualifications e.g. chartered & incorporated engineer, technical professional networks, upcoming events, STEM projects, learning resources, Government policy, engineering partnerships both for large corporate and SME, and commercial & marketing opportunities.

The IET is the UK's oldest and largest multi-disciplinary engineering institution with 168,000 members - and international with members in 127 countries.

Visitors to Advanced Engineering Show can pick up a copy of Engineering & Technology, the IET's award winning magazine from the magazine areas at the show entrance.

  • What is the material for a new age? - An article from The IET's Engineering & Technology magazine

    What will be the defining material of the next industrial age? In the past hundred years, steel gave way to oil and then silicon as information became the defining power behind industrial development. Will it return to energy, with hydrogen becoming a strong contender as a replacement for petroleum, or will renewables make lithium batteries central to future development? Or will other materials step in to propel industrial evolution further?

    Here are E&T’s five contenders as the most likely candidate for the next materials age.

    Lithium: a high-energy choice
    Hydrogen: the lightweight option
    Copper: the second Bronze Age
    The periodic table: information is power
    Carbon: or rather synthetic biology

  • Seven top jobs for the future - An article from The IET's Engineering & Technology magazine

    From the robotic mechanics, soldiers, doctors and - most famously - translators in ‘Star Wars’, to the spider-like police spies in ‘The Minority Report’, dystopian films and books have long warned that robots will take our jobs. As it turns out, fact is becoming stranger than fiction in the 21st century, with experts warning we may be twiddling our non-metallic thumbs within decades thanks to strides in automation and AI technologies.

    The World Economic Forum (WEF) predicts the jobs market will be shaken up by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which includes developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, nanotechnology, genetics and biotechnology. This will cause “widespread disruption not only to business models but also to labour markets…with enormous change predicted in the skill sets needed to thrive in the new landscape,” according to its ‘Future of Jobs’ report.

    The researchers came up with a novel way of estimating the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, and their findings made for bleak reading. “Our model predicts that most workers in transportation and logistics occupations, together with the bulk of office and administrative support workers, and labour in production occupations, are at risk,” they write.

    However, it’s not all doom and gloom. Over the next 15 years, automation and other technologies will “bring numerous benefits in the form of higher productivity, GDP growth, improved corporate performance, and new prosperity,” according to McKinsey.

    So what will the world of work look like in the next 15 years and beyond? It may be impossible to predict, but Biden believes you might be able to apply for roles like these…
