The Institution of Engineering and Technology (The IET) was founded in 1871, as the Society of Telegraph Engineers. As the application of electrical engineering spread beyond telegraphy to power, lighting and other areas, the name was changed to the Institution of Electrical Engineers. It was granted a Royal Charter in 1921. In 2006, the IET was formed to further reflect developing technologies. The IET, as a registered charity (in England and Scotland), exists to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas for the advancement of science, engineering and technology. The IET has two main roles as a professional body - the maintenance of professional engineering standards and, as a global knowledge network, the interchange and dissemination of knowledge and information.

Increasingly, the IET is projecting its voice in contributing to the major issues of our time such as climate change, affordable energy, transportation, sustainable development, the skills shortage and, perhaps one of the more fundamental topics, education. The IET has a strong presence in India, with an office in Bangalore and Local Networks of leading engineers and IT professionals in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. The IET provides a global knowledge network to facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote the positive role of science, engineering and technology.
