Local Government division

Local GovernmentAbout the division

The Local Government division lends focus to an interdisciplinary field, pulling together expertise from the sciences, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, information and computer sciences, infrastructural planning and development, and local government bodies.  The Division is involved with sister institutions and associations, including The Institute of Concrete Technology, The Institution of Civil Engineers, Irish Planning Institute, and Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology.

The division sends representatives to events and meetings at The Irish Academy of Engineering and various Irish Standards Institute committees.  It also provides members with a professional and social network for learning and developing potential business opportunities.  Members can access relevant events and networking opportunities with peers and associated groups at events organised by the division.  It aims to provide a useful forum where engineering professionals and the general public can meet to discuss a range of local government issues.    

Members can benefit from:

  • Networking with colleagues
  • Networking with industry experts
  • Keeping up to date with the latest events, technical presentations and access to research and support material.
  • Attending events, courses, site visits and customised seminars to advance their continuous professional development
