IEE and IEE Merge to Form IET - The Institution of Engineering and Technology

.: On 31 March 2006, the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) merged to form a new professional institution for all European engineers, known as IET, the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Information from the press release:

Europe’s largest professional society for engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology has been launched today in London.

The new Institution has been formed by the Institution of Electrical Engineers and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers and will have more than 150,000 members worldwide.

On the IET website, the IEEE/IEE Electronic Library has been changed to the IEEE/IET Digital Library. According to John Platt of IEEE, in an posting on PAMNET-L:
No changes to access through IEEE Xplore are expected. A few IEE journals or conferences will likely change their names following the merger, but that should be it.
