Volunteering

Engineers Ireland couldn’t function without the participation of members who take on volunteering commitments throughout the year.  By volunteering you can get valuable CPD credits, network with other engineers, hone your presentation skills and share your knowledge.

Volunteers are an essential part of many of the core activities of Engineers Ireland and are tasked with:

Providing a human face to the profession of engineering

Imparting knowledge

Covering a geographical spread of expertise

Helping to raise awareness of the profession

Engineers Ireland recognizes an exceptional volunteer or volunteer group each year with an award that is presented at the annual Excellence Awards.

Graduate Volunteers

Gain CPD credits while improving your communication, negotiation and presentation skills. Engineers Ireland offers engineering students a dedicated career session in their final year of college which graduate engineers are invited to attend and present a short 15 minute presentation on the skills that engineering companies expect of their graduate engineers, and what students can expect when they begin working in industry.

Steps Volunteers

Engineers Ireland runs several initiatives at primary and post-primary level through its STEPS programme. If you are just starting out on your professional career, this volunteer opportunity affords you a chance to hone your presentation and communication skills, essential tools for any professional.

Interviewers and Assessors

Develop your knowledge of the professional standards for engineering and influence the awarding of professional titles to suitable engineers, all while continuing your professional development.

This volunteer opportunity allows you to directly influence the admission of engineers to the professional titles of Chartered Engineer, Associate Engineer and Engineering Technician, while also giving you the chance to increase your knowledge of the profession.

Mentor

Learn to become a mentor and use your experience to truly assist another in your profession.

A mentor provides invaluable support to a member who is applying for the professional title of Chartered Engineer, Associate Engineer or Engineering Technician through the experiential learning route to title.

Regional Branches, Engineering Divisions and Societies

Volunteering to participate in a sector is an ideal way to gain the most from your membership. You can meet local engineers and develop your knowledge of specific disciplines, while also sharing your expertise with interested peers.
