Engineering & Technology magazine is a monthly magazine and associated website for professional engineers with a circulation of approximately 150,000. It is published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology for its members through the wholly owned subsidiary IET Services. The magazine is editorially independent of the institution and the views expressed in it do not necessarily reflect those of its editors or publishers. E&T is a magazine rather than a peer-reviewed journal. It publishes articles of interest to a comparatively wide readership across different types of engineering. It aims to entertain as well as inform its readership. E&T covers all types of engineering and technology, and some science. However, it especially focuses on electrical and electronic engineering, and communications and information technologies. There are three features editors for the extensive features section: the engineering features editor covering power, energy, some transport, manufacturing and automation; a technology features editor covering communications, electronics and information technology; and a general features editor covering subjects that go beyond or across those subject areas.
