Step Up!

Step up – your local engineering community needs you!

Hopefully over the years you will have been to some IET events in your local area. These events are only possible due to the hard work of dedicated volunteers – but now they need your help. Will you step up?


IET Dorset & South Wiltshire Local Network Hosts Dorset Business Awards "Meet The Finalist" event
Dorset Business Award finalists stretching from Gillingham to Weymouth and Ringwood to Bridport are set to gather at an exclusive drinks reception on Monday November 18 to celebrate reaching the penultimate step in the 2013 competition.
Finalists in this year’s Dorset Business Awards, in association with the Daily Echo and Dorset Echo, represent a range of industries, from manufacturing and retailing to hospitality and technology.  They will all get together at a Sponsors and Finalists drinks reception, sponsored by the Dorset and South Wiltshire Local Network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET,) at Ferndown Golf Club on 18 November 2013.
The reception will provide finalists with the opportunity to celebrate their achievements, meet award sponsors and other shortlisted finalists as well as find out about the Awards Gala Dinner.
John Savage, Chairman of the Dorset and South Wiltshire Local Network of the IET, says: “The aim our network is to raise awareness of science, engineering and technology in the region and the Meet the Finalists event will be a perfect forum for us to do this.  With several of this year’s finalists working within the engineering and technology profession, it is evident that these sectors are thriving in Dorset.  We wish everyone the best of luck.”

The Dorset & South Wiltshire Network host regular events which are free and open to all to attend.
