Islamic Society of Engineers

The Islamic Society of Engineers (ISE) (Persian: جامعهٔ اسلامی مهندسین‎, Jāme'-e eslāmī-ye mohandisīn) is a principlist political organization of engineers in Iran. Formerly one of the parties aligned with the Combatant Clergy Association,[1] it is close to the Islamic Coalition Party, whose decisions they mostly follow. It is questionable whether it is an independent and strong party.[3]
