St Mary’s College Hosts Engineering Week


St Mary’s College is encouraging students in Derry and Donegal to engineer the Ireland of tomorrow by hosting a number of fun events and activities during Engineers Week 2019.

Take place from 2 – 8 March 2019, Engineers Week encourages primary and post-primary schools, their teachers and parents to explore the exciting world of engineering the diverse career opportunities engineering offers.

The annual event is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland’s STEPS programme – funded under Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover Programme Call and supported industry leaders, Til, Arup, ESB and intel.

St Mary’s College will host Roadshows, Workshops, Film Screenings and a STEM Careers Fair that will promote STEM careers to not only our own students but over a thousand visiting pupils!

“The week also highlights how a career in engineering is accessible to all those who have an interest in the sector. There are many misconceptions about the “type of person” you should be to pursue Engineering and during Engineers Week we can show people that the world of engineering is open to everyone – girls, boys, creative thinkers, curious minds, problem-solvers and leaders”.
