Case Study: Engineers Week 2018 at Rockwell Automation Ltd
Rockwell Automation recently hosted an engineering-related event on the 12th of April to as part of Engineers Week 2018. Rockwell Automation invited Transition Year Students from St Aloysius College, Carrigtohill , Co. Cork for an on-site visit/tour of the premises. During the visit, students were provided with an overview on Engineering Careers along with an opportunity to participate in a Coding Session.
“Our students from St. Aloysius College visited Rockwell Automation, Carrigtwohill yesterday. All students were very impressed with the visit. The girls arrived to hot food served to them as well as a goody bag containing relevant information on technology and engineering. The students then did a interactive workshop where they practiced coding – some for the first time. The instructors were very friendly and explained to the girls how to carry out the coding in a very student friendly manner. The students then had two talks on engineering and computing and both presenters made plenty of reference to the Leaving Certificate syllabus. The visit started on time and finished on time. Some girls were treated to more gifts for winning a little competition organised. A fantastic visit, very smooth and professional. We would love the opportunity to return. ” Mr Ryan Gallagher, Science Teacher who attended the event with students.
As an Employer, we were very privileged to have the opportunity to inspire the students by providing an overview on the large range of careers that engineering involves. We want the next generation to consider all the possibilities that engineering has to offer and to offer our support wherever possible to help the students to achieve their goal. We are very proud to have an opportunity to inspire the next generation of engineers!
