STEPS Engineering Your Future - Applications now open

28 November 2019 at 11:17

Applications are currently open for STEPS Engineering Your Future (EYF), a week-long, hands-on programme designed to give Transition Year students a meaningful, practical insight into engineering at third level and as a career.

Now entering its 8th year, the annual Transition Year programme is coordinated by Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme – funded by the SFI Discover Programme  and the Department of Education and Skills and supported by industry leaders Arup, ESB, Intel and TII – and hosted by third level institutions and industry.

During the programme, which is run over three to five days, students attend interactive talks and presentations; get hands-on experience with group-based activities; visit local industry and meet engineers at various stages in their careers.  This annual immersion experience has grown from five programmes in 2013 to 18 programmes in 2020 and has engaged over 1,700 students to date.

In 2020, the programme will be hosted by a number of third-level institutions throughout Ireland, including:  Cork IT, DCU, DKIT, GMIT, IT Carlow, IT Tralee, IT Sligo, Maynooth University, NUIG, TU Dublin -Blanchardstown Campus, TU Dublin - City Campus, TU Dublin - Tallaght Campus, UCC, UCD and WIT. An industry version of the programme will be hosted by ESB in Dublin, Limerick and Sligo.

Please note that applications for the programme will only be accepted from Transition Year Students 2019-2020. Applications will not be accepted from parents, carers or teachers on behalf of students.
