Over 70 members of Engineers Ireland were conferred with registered professional titles at a recent ceremony in Clyde Road on Wednesday, 30th May.
 
A registered professional title from Engineers Ireland provides peer reviewed and internationally recognised formal recognition of our members’ professional competence and is an accolade associated with the very best of the engineering profession.  
 
The conferring of parchments confirmed the successful demonstration of members’ engineering formation and their competence to practice professionally. This competency was assessed by Engineers Ireland’s assessors and interviewers.
 
Three Associate Engineers and 55 Chartered Engineers received their professional titles on the evening by President, Dr Kieran Feighan. Nine members also received the title of Fellow on the evening, the highest level of membership awarded by Engineers Ireland. This title is reserved for engineers who have demonstrated a significant level of experience and professionalism. 
 
As President of Engineers Ireland, Dr Feighan also had the privilege of issuing a Presidential Invitation to become a Fellow of Engineers Ireland to John Casey, Asset Strategy and Sustainability Manger at Irish Water; Prof Andrew Deeks, President of University College Dublin; Bernard Looney, Chief Executive of Upstream at BP p.l.c ; Zelia Madigan, Deputy CEO of Equiendo and Jacinta Ryan, Operations Manager with ESB.
 
The President, on foot of approval from Engineers Ireland’s Council, also awarded four Honorary Fellow titles to Patrick Hanratty, Senior Counsel of the Law Library of Ireland and CEDR Accredited Mediator; David Hayde, Chairman of CEL; Prof Brian MacCraith, President of Dublin City University and Prof Susan McKenna-Lawlor, Founder and Managing Director of Space Technology Ireland Ltd; for their contributions to engineering and science.  
 
In addition to those conferred at the Dublin ceremony, 90 members were also conferred at ceremonies in the North East, Northern, Cork, Midlands, West, South East, Thomond and Great Britain regions over the last number of months.
