Engineering Week 2018

Engineering Week 2018 kicked off on Monday with a screening of "Dream Big" for 3rd & 4th year students. We are only 1 of 50 schools, colleges & universities in the country to be allowed screen this documentary by Engineers Ireland. Our school has such a good reputation with this organisation that we were privileged to be able to screen it. And what a success it was with the students. There were several questions for Mr Mc Namara, who organises the week, about Engineering and Engineering courses in college.
