What are your interests?



Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.



Engineers Week 2018 how your school can get involved

Engineers Week will be back early next year from February 24th to March 2nd to celebrate engineering across Ireland. The week is a collaboration among schools, businesses, community groups and volunteers from the engineering profession, who come together to showcase the exciting world of engineering. 

Events and activities that aim to be fun and informative for all involved will take place around the country during the week - which will take place from 24th February to 2nd March, 2018. The annual event is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme - a strategic partner of Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Smart Futures Programme.

Thanks to the efforts of industry and volunteer engineers, this year’s Engineers Week was the most successful yet: with 786 events running across Ireland and 177 organisations taking place; managing to engage a grand total of 63,254 participants.

The Engineers Week website has all the resources and ideas you need in order to bring Engineers Week to your school.
