About UK Institution of Engineering and Technology

The Institution of Engineering and Technology was founded in 1871 as the Society of Telegraph Engineers and later became the Institution of Electrical Engineers. In 2006 it joined with the Institution of Incorporated Engineers to become the IET. It is the professional home for life for engineers and technicians with over 150,000 members worldwide. The IET Library and Archives collections were awarded Designated status recognising their international importance in engineering history. The collections include books and journals, personal papers and corporate collections, photographs and films and rare books dating back to the fourteenth century. Access to the collections is provided through an enquiry service, website, talks and visits to the Archives Centre by appointment. For more information please contact archives@theiet.org

Collections from Institution of Engineering and Technology on Ancestry site include certificates of admission, proposals to admit new members and other various forms of membership. Engineering records from the late 19th century document a particularly important era in UK history. Records like these can tie into occupations in the census, railway records, and trade union records, as well as revealing biographical details and work patterns over time.
