Previously known as the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), IET’s aim is to “inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community, supporting technology innovation to meet the needs of society”. The IET is responsible for validating and registering Chartered Engineers in this profession.
The fellowship status is awarded to “individuals who have demonstrated significant individual responsibility and sustained achievement in their profession”.
On receiving the fellowship Dr Chan said: “It is my honour to become a fellow of the IET. The institution is a home of electronics, electrical, manufacturing, and Information Technology professionals. The impact of its members’ contribution on the society is obvious. I hope achieving this status is a recognition that can motivate younger generations to join the profession and to continue building the community”.
