Engineers Week 2018< back to news

Get ready for Engineers Week!

Preparation for Engineers Week 2018 is now in full swing across Ireland as schools, businesses, community groups and volunteers from the profession join forces and work together to celebrate the exciting world of engineering.

Events and activities that aim to be fun and informative for all involved will take place around the country during the week - which will take place from 24th February to 2nd March, 2018. The annual event is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme - a strategic partner of Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Smart Futures Programme.

Thanks to the efforts of industry and volunteer engineers, this year’s Engineers Week was the most successful yet: with 786 events running across Ireland and 177 organisations taking place; managing to engage a grand total of 63,254 participants.

We want this year to be even more successful and we encourage all engineers to join the celebrations by showcasing the exciting world of engineering to the nation. There are many fun ways in which you and your organisation can get involved, no matter how big or small your organisation is.

Foe ideas and inspiration; the Engineers Ireland STEPS team has created a get involved guide; where you can also register your event, download activities and exclusively, for the first time - register to host a free screening of Dream Big - Engineering Our World.
