Chartered Engineer

Chartered Engineers are leaders in the industry. They are ethical practitioners who maintain the highest level of competence and professional integrity. They develop new technology and use innovative methods to solve complex problems. 

We are updating the regulations for the professional titles of Chartered Engineer, Associate Engineer and Engineering Technician. The main changes relate to the alignment of the professional competences with international standards and the new Engineers Ireland Accreditation Criteria. January 2024 will be the final deadline under the current regulations and the new regulations and associated guidance will be published in February 2024.
