About the programme at DIT
Engineering your Future at DIT is a week-long, hands-on event designed to introduce TY students to the diverse, exciting and rewarding career opportunities offered by engineering.

You’ll get to build bridges; design, build and programme your own robot car; and compete individually and in groups to win some cool prizes.
Students who previously attended EYF at DIT said: Over 95% of surveyed students at EYF in DIT said they would recommend the programme to a friend.

Participants said:

“I hope to study engineering in a few years and the week in DIT confirmed this for me as I think that engineering is so diverse, innovative and interesting.”

“The whole week was great but I especially enjoyed the electronic part of making the robot car.”

And one participant’s mother wrote:
“He couldn't get out the door quickly enough every morning that week and I think the course convinced him to follow his heart towards engineering as a future college course.”
