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.

Help us to inspire future engineers
The IET South Yorkshire Local Network will be exhibiting at the Big Bang Near Me - Yorkshire and Humber on Tuesday 26th June, with hands-on activities designed to get the next generation interested in engineering.
We are looking for enthusiastic members to help us run the activities on the IET stand from 8:00am to 17:00pm. No experience is necessary; we'll give an overview of all of the activities at the beginning of the day.
For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Layla Graham:

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
