What is Engineers Week?
Engineers Week is a week-long programme of nationwide events celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. The aim of the week is to create a positive awareness of and spark enthusiasm about the engineering profession among young people with little or no engineering background.
Who is involved?
Engineers Ireland’s STEPS team coordinates Engineers Week and is responsible for the development of resources and materials, partner liaison and communication. Event hosts organise activities on a local level. Host organisations vary from engineering organisations to third-level institutions, libraries and educational centres.
STEPS works in strategic partnership with Science Foundation Ireland on Smart Futures, a collaborative government-industry-education programme promoting STEM careers to post-primary students in Ireland.
STEPS is supported by the Department of Education and Skills, and a number of major engineering employers.
Engineers Week would not be possible without the support of engineering organisations, universities, libraries, educational centres and many others. We’d like to thank everyone involved with Engineers Week 2017.
