Engineering Technician

Engineering Technicians contribute to the design, development and manufacturing of products and services.

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.
