Bangalore , Dec. 1

The UK-based Institute for Engineering and Technology (IET) announced on Wednesday the addition of a significant number of Indian employees of ARM, a multinational chip design firm, as members.

IET is a recently formed global body of scientists and engineers, born from the merger of Institute of Electrical Engineers with the Institute of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) earlier this year.

The 1,65,000-member strong body and expects to draw more Indian members this year.

"Fifty employees of the hardware firm are joining IET and we expect more from the broader area of information communication and telecom to join," Mr Paul Jackson, Director (Professional Operations), IET, told Business Line.

He was in the city to inaugurate a centre.

Two initiatives by the organisation - a digital library of white papers called Inspect and a video database of seminar presentations called IEE TV - are expected to attract members.

Inspect has over 10 million records now, with 5,00,000 records being added every year.

"This reflects the spurt in growth in economies like India," said Mr Jackson.

Three per cent of these white papers are from India, while China accounts for nine per cent.

"We expect the contribution from Indian scientists and engineers to double over the next three years."

IET plans to open an office in Delhi next year. The body plans to double the number of member additions from 2,50,000 a month.
