  • Measurement and Inspection
  • Design
  • Health and Safety

 Students of Engineering will use a unique range of skills in the design and production of a project to meet a specified design brief. This project, allied with a practical skills test and a final written paper on engineering theory make Engineering Technology a very diverse, interesting and challenging subject. It will allow a student to develop a true appreciation for the world of Engineering and provide them with an introduction to Engineering at third level and a possible career in one of the many facets of the subject.
