Engineers Week is a chance for second-level students and their teachers to be inspired by engineering, find out more about careers in this exciting area, and win prizes.
Hundreds of events and activities will take place across the country from 28th February to 5th March 2016, in companies, schools, museums and libraries. Or why not run your own event in the classroom?

Hosted by colleges around the country, the Engineering Your Future programme gives TransitionYear students a meaningful, practical insight into engineering at third level and as a career.
Attending students gain a week of exposure to the various engineering disciplines – by taking part in hands-on workshops, labs and demos; interacting with lecturers and graduates; and meeting engineers during industry visits.
The programme opens for applications each January, and runs in April or May.
