About Us

The Yorkshire North Local Network is led by local volunteers who come together to organise lectures and technical visits that provide opportunities to learn and meet new people. All events are open to the public and most are free of charge.

The Local Network aims to raise awareness of science, engineering and technology in the local area, and promote membership of the IET.

Our Professional Registration Advisors (PRAs) are available to help candidates for CEng, IEng, and EngTech.


Our in-person events are usually held in the North Yorkshire area, but we also host a range of online events. To find our events on IET EngX, visit the “events” page filtered by Yorkshire North Local Network or look to the right of this page. If there is an event or visit that you'd like us to organise, or you'd like to help to organise, please get in touch – we are always interested in new ideas.
