LIT helps create awareness of Engineering as a career – LIT Engineering Week 2015

The Faculty of Applied Science, Engineering and Technology hold their Engineering Week in December of every Year. The week involves the participation of both the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Department of Mechanical and Automobile Engineering


This engineering initiative is exclusively for students who are;
1) Undertaking Engineering as a final year subject in the Leaving Certificate
2) Interested in Engineering as a future career

Set over 5 days, the students come to LIT for one day and the purpose of the visit is twofold, firstly they attend a seminar on a prescribed specialised topic from the Leaving Certificate, and secondly, they are introduced to the engineering disciplines within the school by way of workshops


The visit to LIT informs students and assist them in their decision when it comes to making their CAO application. Up to 600 students book in for the week averaging 100 to 120 per day. They represent schools from Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Offaly, Mayo and Galway. School participation is growing every year.

The following is an overview of what is involved in these visits:

1) A presentation on the Leaving Certificate Engineering Prescribed Specialised Topic (Basic principles of operation and applications of Rapid Prototyping processes).

2) Course Information Stands.

3) Workshop tours covering most Engineering courses at this Institute, to include:

  • Solid Works/ CAD CAM
  • Material Analysis and Engineering Technology
  • Automobile Engineering
  • Renewable Energy
  • Operation of a 3D printer built by 2 students Lee Enright & Jonatan Djeko who studied Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems (LC277)
  • Automation and Robotic Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Industrial Electrical Workshop

This initiative is now in its 19th year and has proven very successful for both the second level students and the Institute. Well done to all involved.
