What we do

Match-funding during Bob Cryan’s year as IET President.

During Professor Bob Cryan’s presidential year, the IET has been matching every donation to the Futures Fund up to a total of £500,000. We’re overjoyed to announce that, thanks to the unwavering support of our members and donors, we have successfully reached this target. This amazing achievement highlights the IET’s commitment to supporting and inspiring the next generation of engineers.

Together we can transform lives.

87% of our awards alumni (2019-2023) are employed in the engineering and technology sector

The importance of inspiring more young people to choose science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects and related degree courses or apprenticeships to bridge the skills gap in UK industry is widely recognised and has never been more important for the future of our profession

50,000+ children each year will experience a STEM event delivered by the IET

Because one STEM event can change a career path and with your support we can bring our programmes to a wider audience.

Making a difference

"If we 'support today' they may 'deliver in the future'.

"There is a hidden talent in all children - let STEM initiatives and other inspiration help show them the way."
