Engineering Excellence Digital Series

Engineers Ireland’s Engineering Excellence Digital Series, held in association with ESB, shines a light on the creative ways Ireland’s engineers seek to support and transform society. In addition to the engineering skill needed to deliver these projects in 2022, the series also highlights the engineers behind these projects and how their work benefits communities in Ireland and overseas.

Following a free-to-enter competition and judging process, five engineering projects were selected to represent the top engineering initiatives undertaken in the fields of innovation, sustainability, buildings and structures, and infrastructure. The sixth video in the series recognises Engineers Ireland’s Engineer of the Year.

In addition to viewing the series, Engineers Ireland is also encouraging its 25,000 member engineers and the wider public to vote for their top engineering project featured in the series for the Engineering Endeavour of 2022 Award by noon on Friday, 9 December.

Meet our Engineer of the Year

Mary Hurley has been awarded the prestigious title of Engineer of the Year 2022 by Engineers Ireland.

In her role as a Major Linear Infrastructure Project Manager with engineering consultancy firm Arup, Mary strives to make a positive impact and create sustainable solutions for communities across Ireland. Throughout her 20-year career, she has challenged preconceived ideas by developing innovative approaches to sustainable transport projects. She believes that adaptability, communication and empathy are three of the greatest skill sets that engineers can possess, and that people should be at the heart of all engineering projects.


The Engineering Excellence Digital Series is held in association with ESB. 

As Title Sponsor of the Excellence Awards since 2010 and now our new Digital Excellence Series, we would like to thank ESB for their ongoing support in recognising Ireland's engineering profession.
