Junior Engineering (Materials Technology Metal - Metalwork) is the perfect introduction for Junior Cert. Students to the world of engineering. It allows students to develop all the basic practical knowledge and skills necessary to manufacture a broad range of engineering components and products.

As well as an introduction to design
students learn the basics of:

Mettalurgy
Materials Science
Handtools and Equipment
Measurement
Machining
CNC Machining
Joining of Materials
Health & Safety ( Good Workshop Practice)

With both theory and practical elements to the examination, the student will get a great opportunity to show their talents. With the completion and part design of a Final Project, students find Junior Engineering to be a very motivating and rewarding subject, opening their eyes to the world of engineering at Leaving Certificate level and beyond.

Engineering in general is one of the most integral and fast moving facets of modern life. To choose a career in the epicentre of such an interesting and dynamic field must be an exciting prospect for any student.

Engineering Technology at Leaving Cert. gives students a firm grounding in all the main engineering principles:

Materials Science
Polymer Technology
Machining
CAD/CAM
Material Joining
Measurement and Inspection
Applied Dynamics
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.
