The Irish Academy of Engineering was founded in May 1997 by The Institution of Engineers of Ireland (now Engineers Ireland), which is the national representative body for the Engineering Profession in Ireland. In setting up The Academy, the Institution was motivated by similar objectives to those of other academies of engineering around the world who saw the need to afford engineering and engineering research an enhanced profile in national affairs. The Academy is an all Ireland body and it performs a valuable role in linking the profession in both jurisdictions on the Island in matters of common interest affecting the Island of Ireland as a whole.
Objective of The Academy
The overall objective of The Academy is "to advance the science and practice of engineering in Ireland and to support the expansion and enhancement of engineering education as an essential element in national development and the enhancement of living standards". The Academy is an independent body with its own governing council. In its formative years the Academy continues to receive support from Engineers Ireland and formal liaison is maintained quarterly at officer level.
