Engineers Week, an annual campaign to promote engineering as a career and the importance of the profession to Ireland, is taking place from February 25th to March 3rd 2013.
On February 26th, Engineers Week will arrive in Tipperary with the “Move It” event, taking place in LIT Thurles at 9.45am and 11.15am.
John Power, Director General, Engineers Ireland, said: “We are encouraging everyone in Tipperary to get involved in Engineers Week 2013 and see how engineers are changing the world we live in by developing new technologies, new energy sources and breakthrough medical devices. School children, teachers, families, parents and grandparents are all welcome. Engineers Week will show that engineering is ingenuity; it is creativity – it’s about pushing the boundaries of possibility. There are some great activities taking place across the country and I hope you all take the time to join in and enjoy the week.”
Engineers Week will run from February 25th to 3rd of March with activities taking place nationwide. The week is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland as part of the STEPS programme which is a strategic partner of Discover Science and Engineering (DSE). DSE aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public.
