About the Region

The West region covers counties Galway, Mayo and Roscommon providing a focal point for engineers of all grades and disciplines, and proactively encouraging their continuous professional development through delivery of a varied programme of lectures, seminars, site visits, golfing and social networking events. 

The Region is known as a centre of excellence for biomedical engineering, with significant research and development ongoing at private companies, particularly around Galway, and at third-level institutions including NUIG, GMIT and the Irish Marine Institute at Oranmore.  It encompasses part of the Gaeltacht region of Galway and Mayo and particularly welcomes participation “as Gaeilge” with an annual “Leacht as Gaeilge” now an established component of the programme of events.
