The IET 150: My Sustainable Community Competition
In partnership with Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) we launched a special competition for our 150th anniversary, open to young people across the UK, called My Sustainable Community. We wanted to help young people discover how engineering and technology can be key in providing solutions to some of the planet’s largest challenges, all while having fun!
The 150 show
To celebrate turning 150, we ran a week of exciting, engineering-led programmes during our official anniversary, called The 150 Show. In case you missed any of the episodes, you can relive the magic on demand!
Global Volunteer Engagement Fund activities
We gave support to our 4,000+ volunteers around the world – so they could host special events and activities to commemorate our milestone anniversary.
Changing the face of engineering and technology
Our anniversary was a perfect time to pause, reflect, and then create the ultimate list of engineers and technology who have changed the world throughout history to date, or are continuing to revolutionise it now.
