Engineering Your Future hands-on programme for Transition Year students who have an interest in science and maths. It is designed to introduce them to the exciting and diverse world of engineering.

Hosted by a number of colleges and companies around the country, the Engineering Your Future programme provides a week of exposure to the various engineering disciplines. Attending students gain a meaningful, practical insight into engineering at third level and as a career - interacting with lecturers and graduates, taking part in workshops and meeting engineers during industry visits.

This year the School of Engineering hosted a 3 day Programme for 20 Transition year students.  Their schedule was busy and varied. Lunch was provided each day. Click here to download the TY schedule.  

The first day started with an introduction to the School of Engineering with a brief presentatation by our Head of School, Professor Liam Marnane, who also outlined their days ahead. 

The students not only experienced Engineering at UCC on the main campus,  they also visited the INFANT Research Centre in CUH, the Irish Photonic Integration Centre at Tyndall National Institute and the Centre for Mareine and Renewable Energy in Ringaskiddy. 

We believe the students not only found the days informative but that they enjoyed experiencing tasters in all areas of Engineering and of course a taste of student life at UCC.
