Engineering Your Future

Terms and Conditions for participating in Engineering Your Future


  • Students agree to take part in surveys before, during or after the EYF programme. Engineers Ireland will from time to time contact students who attended EYF to gauge their ongoing interest levels in engineering and STEM over a number of years. Students agree to participate in these surveys. Students' data will be stored by Engineers Ireland for the purposes of carrying out these surveys. Participants are free to opt out of the survey mailing list any time they wish. 
  • After EYF, students may occasionally be contacted by the STEPS programme with information relevant to engineering. Students' details will not be shared with third parties.


  • Payment of a fee is required to secure a place on the EYF programme. If a student wishes to cancel their place within seven days of the start of the programme, fees are non-refundable. All cancellations must be confirmed in writing by email. Fees are posted on each college's page in the EYF section of Students attending DEIS schools are exempt from payment of fees.  


  • Students must provide a copy of their school's insurance policy when accepting a place on the EYF programme.
