Welcome to IET Sussex!

We are the local network of the IET across East and West Sussex, organising events and seminars and promoting engineering in schools and businesses across the two counties. To get involved, you might like to come along to one of our events. We have a wide variety of lectures throughout the year either in Crawley or Falmer or online, all free of charge, and you don't need to be an IET member to attend. Visit the events page filtered by Sussex Local Network to find out about our upcoming events.

If you have any questions on the Sussex Network or are interested in volunteering for any of our activities then please contact our secretary at
