What are your interests?



Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain.

Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target.

Engineering Your Future TY Programme
TY students – register your interest now for the Engineering Your Future Experience

Applications will open on October 5th for Engineering Your Future, a week-long, hands-on programme designed to introduce TY students to the exciting and diverse world of engineering. 

The annual Transition Year programme is supported by Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme - a strategic partner of Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Smart Futures initiative – and will be hosted by a number of third-level institutes around Ireland in May. Last year it was hosted by: DIT; UCD; IT Tallaght and Maynooth University; CIT in Cork; IT Carlow; Waterford IT and GMIT. This year hopes to be even bigger!

The programme is designed to give TY students an in-depth understanding of the diversity of engineering at third level and in industry. During the week, 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

Successful applicants are selected based on a number of factors, including Junior Certificate maths and science results and reasons for seeking a place on the programme. There is a small fee for participating in the programme. (Fees are waived for students from DEIS schools.)
