Engineering – Metalwork (Junior Certificate) 

 Junior Engineering (Materials Technology Metal – Metalwork) is the perfect introduction for Junior Cert. Students to the world of engineering. It allows students to develop all the basic practical knowledge and skills necessary to manufacture a broad range of engineering components and products. As well as an introduction to design, students learn the basics of: 

 * Metallurgy

* Materials Science

* Handtools and Equipment

* Measurement

* Machining

* Computer Aided Design & Machining

 * Joining of Materials  

* Health & Safety ( Good Workshop Practice)

  With both theory and practical elements to the examination, the student will get a great opportunity to show their talents. With the completion and part design of a Final Project, students find Junior Engineering to be a very motivating and rewarding subject, opening their eyes to the world of engineering at Leaving Certificate level and beyond. 

 The Exam

Metalwork at Junior Certificate involves the completion of a practical project and practical exam prior to the written exam in June
