Welcome to the first issue of the new E+T magazine.
We have been busy exploring different ways of delivering great content to our readers, and I’d like to share some updates, along with our plans for the future direction of E+T.
E+T is our flagship publication that provides all of you, our 154,000 global IET members, with a credible and informative voice that challenges thinking to drive important change within the sector.
We have been conducting a review of all the different elements of E+T to see how we can best enhance the portfolio we offer, evolving the solutions we provide for readers and remaining digitally innovative and relevant.
We want to balance the focus on print and digital to grow E+T’s impact, while leveraging publishing industry best practice to continuously evolve our digital content. Our vision for the new E+T is one that provides the content you want, when you want it, and through a wide range of channels. It will give you the insight you need to develop in your careers, inspire the wider engineering profession and attract a new generation of engineers into the IET community.
To help us realise this vision, we have launched this redesigned magazine, which will soon be followed by a brand-new website and updated digital channels. Our new website will be a more immersive platform, customised and enriched with video, webinars and podcasts. Members will have the opportunity to boost their professional development with CPD-ready content to improve their technical and business skills.
The printed magazine will remain an important component of the E+T portfolio and will be produced and delivered six times a year, supplemented by an increased amount of digital content. I am aware that the old E+T app has reached the end of its useful life, so those of you who read the magazine digitally will be able to do so through an improved ‘page-turner’ web edition, along with a downloadable PDF.
The new E+T will remain a sector-leading voice on topics that matter to today’s engineering and technology community, with an increased focus on delivering thought leadership and intelligence. You will find some familiar faces across the magazine, website and other channels – along with a range of new ones.
Moving forward, the magazine will also have a closer alignment with the wider IET. We are confident that this new approach will reach even broader audiences across the globe, while ensuring we continue to deliver to, and represent, our global membership body in the most impactful way.
I hope you enjoy the issue. If you do, please share your copy with a non-member colleague and help build our community.
Ed Almond, chief executive and secretary at the IET
