Coordinated by Calmast STEM Engagement Centre, South East Technological University with colleagues from the School of Engineering SETU Waterford and the Faculty of Engineering SETU Carlow, Engineers Ireland South East Region and Engineering the South East industry cluster.

This year’s festival will kick off on Saturday 1st and continue on to 7th March 2025. World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development is celebrated worldwide on 4th March each year.

What does an engineer do?

Engineers design products and processes that make our everyday lives easy. Engineers combine science, maths and computing with design thinking to create the things we depend on, such as buildings, bridges, roads, water supplies, electricity supplies, mobile phones, computers and much more. Engineers are also working to find ways of reducing the threat of Climate Change.

The South East Engineering Festival will give people in the South East of Ireland an opportunity to learn what engineers do and how they do it.

There are lots of great jobs in engineering and there are many opportunities to learn to be an engineer at SETU – South East Technological University. Listen to engineers in the region that and their career paths.

This festival is part of National Engineers Week, organised by Engineers Ireland. You can find out lots about Engineering in the Schools section of their website
