Special membership schemes and special professional registration schemes are operated by the IET for each of the Services. We aim to support personnel whilst in the Services and provide active help with their transition to civilian life.

Increase your employability
IET membership is of significant value to Service leavers as they no longer have access to the excellent professional development support they benefited from in their careers in the Services up until now.

Professional registration
Becoming professionally registered as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng), Engineering Technician (EngTech) or ICT Technician (ICTTech) is highly valued by employers and allows your military skills and experience to receive international recognition. Benefits of professional registration:

  • Recognition as a professional in your field;
  • Looks good on your CV and will make you stand out from the crowd;
  • Improved self motivation, career opportunities and salary prospects;
  • Confirmation that you are a competent engineer;
  • Connecting you with innovative, influential and inspirational people;
  • International recognition of your qualifications.
