confer the title of Chartered Engineer. Ireland
Cork Region Engineers who were recently conferred with the title of Chartered Engineer with President
The event was organised in the Cork Region where the Chairman is Dr Jim Robinson. Barry Leach a former Region Chairman together with John J Murphy have been organising this annual event for more than 20 years so it's little wonder that it all happened like clockwork.

It was great to see such a number getting their Chartered Engineer title in particular in these challenging times. Congratulations to all who received titles or prizes!
