Engineers Week is a week long program of nationwide events with the aim of celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. As part of Engineers Week, which typically takes place in February each year, events take place in a range of different venues including castles, libraries and heritage centres and are an important part of creating a positive awareness and sparking enthusiasm about the engineering profession to people of various ages with little or no engineering background.
Each year Intel hosts a variety of events during Engineers Week which invites both primary and secondary school students to explore the world of Engineering.
Almost 5000 students across Ireland, from both primary and secondary schools, took part in Intel hosted activities as part of Engineers Week 2017. Read more here.
The week is coordinated on a national basis by the STEPS team at Engineers Ireland. To find out more visit www.engineersweek.ie.
