Associate Engineers are problem-solvers. They apply current technologies and exercise independent technical judgement in their day-to-day work. In general, they are experienced engineers who actively participate in financial considerations.
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.
