The IET joins the Automation Federation
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has joined the Automation Federation (AF) as the association’s newest member.
The IET and AF signed a formal agreement to collaborate on efforts to advance and grow the automation profession. This agreement was signed at ISA Automation Week 2010: Technology and Solutions Event in Houston, Texas, in the US.
The IET will join the AF and the other AF member organisations—the International Society of Automation (ISA), the Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC), and the Wireless Industrial Network Alliance (WINA)—in joint activities devoted to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); promoting the Automation Competency Model; and advancing the general public’s awareness of automation and technology.
The Chairman of the Automation Federation Energy Committee, Leo Staples, said, “The Automation Federation proudly welcomes the IET as our newest member organisation. AF and the IET share the same commitment to advancing and building the automation profession around the world. By combining our unique expertise and resources with our common interest in automation, our organisations are poised to make a significant impact on behalf of the profession.”
