TII joins Engineers Ireland’s STEPS Programme to support engineering talent pipelineEngineers Ireland

The Engineers Ireland STEPS youth-focused education outreach programme is to be supported by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) over the period 2019-2021 as part of TII’s corporate commitment to encourage young people to consider a career in engineering.

The STEPS programme aims to encourage and educate future generations of engineers by supporting industry and community leaders to engage with primary and secondary school pupils through a number of hands-on workshops and programmes. These include Engineers Week, (nationwide festival, next spring it runs from 2 – 8 March – in 2018 over 850 scheduled events took place with more than 75,000 participants),  Engineering Your Future (immersive experience for transition year students) and the Young Engineers Award. In partnership with the Irish Girl Guides, the STEPS team has also developed Engineering Badges for Girl Guides and Brownies.
