This 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: 

 

  • Metallurgy 
  • Material Science 
  • Hand tools and Equipment.

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. We have a well-equipped specialist room, furnished with 24 benches a large variety of hand tools and metalworking machines. This allows all students to experience the environment of a practical workshop situation.
