Engineering and Computer Sciences Committee
The Engineering and Computer Science Committee is an all-island multidisciplinary committee formed in September 2014. Committee members represent academia, media, industry and government. The main functions of the committee are to address issues of national and international concern through a programme of works, advise the Academy on policy formation and act as the national adhering organisation for international unions including the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). The committee has a varied programme of works including lectures, publications and special events focusing on important issues. This work enables the committee to engage with the wider scholarly community, policy makers and the general public.
The committee contributes to advice papers from the Academy. To see the committee contribution to the new Government Strategy please click here.
