Institution of Incorporated Engineers


Institution of Incorporated Engineers

The Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) was a multidisciplinary engineering institution in the United Kingdom. In 2006 it merged with the IEE to form the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Before the merger the IIE had approximately 40,000 members. The IET is now the second largest engineering society in the world next to the IEEE. The IET has the authority to establish professional registration of engineers through the Engineer Council. The IEEE does not have the authority to replicate the registration process in its complementary environment.

History

The modern IIE traces its heritage to the Vulcanic Society that was founded in 1884. This society became the Junior Institution of Engineers in 1902, which became the Institution of General Technician Engineers in 1970. The Institution of Electrical and Electronic Incorporated Engineers and the Society of Electronic and Radio Technicians merged in 1990 to form the Institution of Electronics and Electrical Incorporated Engineers (IEEIE).

The modern IIE was formed in April 1998 by the merger of The Institution of Electronic and Electrical Incorporated Engineers (IEEIE), The Institution of Mechanical Incorporated Engineers (IMechIE), and The Institute of Engineers and Technicians (IET). In 1999 there was a further merger with The Institution of Incorporated Executive Engineers (IIExE).

In October 2001, IIE received a Royal Charter in recognition of the significant contribution of its members to the UK economy and society.

In 2005 The Society of Engineers merged with the IIE.

Formation of the IET

Discussions started in 2004 between the IEE and the IIE about the formation of a new institution, the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Following members voting in favour of the merger, the IET became operational on 31 March 2006.
