Welcome to IES

IES is a multi-disciplinary engineering body, founded in Scotland, that provides a forum in which individuals from all engineering and related disciplines can discuss and exchange information, generate ideas and encourage young engineers. IES works with kindred bodies to promote a wider understanding of the role of the professional engineer in society.

In November 2020, the name of the Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in Scotland (IESIS) was changed to its original form: the Institution of Engineers in Scotland (IES). This is a new website launched when the name was changed.
