Institution of Engineering and Technology

About the library

The Institution of Engineering and Technology was formed in 2006 by the joining together of the IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers) and the IIE (Institution of Incorporated Engineers). Its history can be traced back to 1871.

The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 168,000 members in 150 countries.

The Library's specialist engineering-related collection has over 70,000 books, pamphlets and journals covering a wide range of disciplines, to reflect the increasingly diverse nature of engineering in the 21st century.

The local library catalogue is available online.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology also contributes to the Archives Hub. To browse descriptions of their archive materials, visit their Archives Hub information page.
