JIE has come to be recognized as the legitimate voice of the Engineering profession in Jamaica, on issues which affect Engineers, including the Metrication Board, the Advisory Committees of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of the West Indies and the Faculty of Engineering & Computing at the University of Technology, the Professional Engineers Registration Board, and the Jamaica Bureau of Standards.

Registration of Engineers
For several years JIE and its predecessors vigorously lobbied the Government to enact appropriate legislation on the registration of professional engineers. These efforts eventually bore fruit, and in July 1987, the Professional Engineers Registration Act was enacted. Under the first schedule of the Act, JIE can nominate up to seven (7) persons to sit on the Board appointed by the responsible Minister, to administer the provisions of the Act.

JIE is affiliated with many professional organizations, such as the Professional Societies Association of Jamaica (PSAJ), and the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) for the Building and Construction Industry in Jamaica; and international organizations such as the Union of Pan American Engineering Organizations (UPADI), and the Council of Caribbean Engineering Organizations (CCEO). JIE also maintains links with the Jamaica Welding Institution which came into being in 1991, as a result earlier of initiatives made by JIE.

On an annual basis JIE provides two (2) awards for excellence in engineering studies at the University of Technology (UTECH): in Diploma, and Bachelor of Engineering academic programmes. JIE also undertakes annually the presentation of awards to persons or organizations who have given commendable service to the profession or the Institution.

Career Information
The Institution has assiduously provided on-going information on careers in the engineering profession, by giving lectures to secondary high schools students that may assist them in making career choices. JIE also participates, in the annually held UWI Career’s Exposition.

JIE publishes a monthly newsletter – JIE Advisor, as well as a Journal of engineering articles and a Diary each year. For the current issue and more news, click here

Social Activities
Socials are held once per month at a designated venue, where engineers meet and relax. The second week in September is designated Engineers’ Week, and a number of seminars, workshops and presentations are held, culminating in the JIE Annual Awards Dinner.
