Engineers Ireland STEPS Programme

The Engineers Ireland STEPS programme, funded by the SFI Discover Programme is a not-for-profit strategic outreach programme that promotes interest and awareness in engineering as a future career to school students through a portfolio of projects.

The STEPS Young Engineers Award is a competition to find talented young engineers across the country. This year we are asking 3rd and 4th class students to look around their community and identify something they would like to improve. They will become part of an engineering team who will take on the challenge and come up with a solution using an engineering approach. Where available, volunteer engineers will visit the classroom to inspire the students and answer any questions they have. 

Engineering Your Future is a week-long Transition Year experience that gives students a hands-on, fun and practical insight into engineering at third level and as a career. Engineering Your Future is coordinated by the Engineers Ireland STEPS programme and is hosted by a variety of colleges and companies all over the country. 

Engineers Week

Engineers Week is a week-long festival of nationwide events celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. The annual event is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland’s STEPS programme -funded under Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover programme call.

STEPS Guides Engineering Badges have been developed in partnership with the Irish Girl Guides.
