Group Information

The South Yorkshire Network organises a programme of technical meetings, visits, colloquia, learned society and social events to meet the needs of the Institution members residing within, or close to, its boundary. These activities are normally open to members of other professional bodies and the general public.

About the Network

The South Yorkshire Network provides a local face of the IET through a main committee of active volunteers with support from full time IET staff. We have an active YP committee who, together with the main committee, plan and deliver our events programme.

Also covering parts of North Nottinghamshire and North East Derbyshire, the Network serves the following major centres: Sheffield, Rotherham, Mexborough, Doncaster, Barnsley, Worksop, Retford, Chesterfield, The Hope Valley and Bakewell.

Title: New for 2018 - IET Volunteer Core Values Awards
It's always good to recognise people for a job well done, especially when they give their services and time for free!
The IET relies on volunteers from around the world to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community. All our volunteers make an amazing contribution and it’s important to recognise the efforts of those special people who go the extra mile, week after week, so we are delighted to announce a new way to acknowledge their achievements.
Our Volunteer Core Values Awards programme recognises the contribution made by IET volunteers who consistently demonstrate our core values – integrity, excellence and teamwork – through their volunteering activities. So if a particular volunteer (or team of volunteers) has impressed you, please don’t keep it to yourself, because now is the time to take action!

Nomination closing date: 30 June 2018

Could you spare a day to inspire and encourage the next generation of Engineers?
The Engineering Extravagansa (STEM) event held at AMRC, near Brinsworth on November 7th was a successful event and thanks are extended to all volunteer helpers who contributed .
A similar day is scheduled for March 2018 (date to be confirmed) and volunteer helpers will again be required.
If you can spare the time and would be willing to assist, please contact Andrew Ellwood (IET SYLN Schools Liaison Officer) by email at:
No prior experience is required. It helps if you are a STEM ambassador; but don’t worry if you aren’t – it’s possible to arrange a 2-hour basic training to suit.

As always - If you have any suggested topics you would like us to consider, or events you would like to see included in our programme, please contact Brian Heathcote at - or any committee member
