Posted on Thursday 9th May 2013

Dr Peter Gardner, Reader in Microwave Engineering in the School of EESE, has been elected to the status of Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (FIET), in recognition of sustained achievements within the profession.

The IET was founded in 1871 as the Society of Telegraph Engineers. It became the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) in 1887 and the IET in 2006. It is one of the world’s leading professional and learned societies for the engineering and technology community.

Of its many academic and professional activities, one of the most important from the point of view of the University and the College is its professional accreditation of the UG and PGT degree programmes in EESE, under licence from the UK Engineering Council. Fellowship of the IET provides many opportunities that are important to EESE and EPS: to promote the engineering profession nationally and internationally; to influence the processes and policies surrounding academic accreditation; and to participate in the governance of the institution.
