IET London: Savoy Place opens

The Institution of Engineering and Technology’s new flagship venue IET London: Savoy Place has officially opened its doors, following a £30m, two year redevelopment on London’s embankment.

The UK headquarters of the Institution of Engineering and Technology will act as an engineering hub in London for engineers everywhere, featuring a plethora of cutting edge exhibitions and engineering spaces combining connectivity, accessibility and inspiring views of the capital.

Celebrating the past, present and future of the IET, Savoy Place is home to a series of exhibits highlighting the engineering history of the IET, as well as the future of engineering.

These include a display of ‘100 engineering ideas that changed the world’, which honours the creations of engineers from around the world and a display of ‘126 most influential engineers’, which features a range of engineers, past and present, from around the world. These exhibitions celebrate the work and achievements of engineers who have dramatically improved the quality of our lives over the years.

IET president, Naomi Climer, said: “We are delighted that IET London: Savoy Place is now open for all of the engineering community to use and enjoy. Throughout the venue, we celebrate the best in engineering accomplishments, which remind us of the huge positive impact that engineering and technology innovation has on society.”

Transformed from top to bottom, other features include two new auditoriums, a second lecture theatre, enlarged riverside suite, state of the art boardrooms, Faraday Centre and Maxwell Library and roof terrace with unrivalled views of the Thames and the London skyline named after aviation pioneer Amy Johnson. There is also a digital chandelier hung in the reception and live video walls featuring the latest engineering innovations on the second floor.

The first lecture of the year to be held at IET London: Savoy Place will take place on 14 January, where Dr. Chih-Lin I, chief scientist of Wireless Technologies at the China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI), will deliver the 51st IET Appleton Lecture 2016 entitled ‘5G - Getting closer to answers?’.

The 51st Appleton Lecture is free for delegates and forms part of the IET’s Prestige Lecture series which showcase the latest ideas and technologies from a wide range of experts from a variety of disciplines.
