Engineers Week 2019
Engineers Week 2019 took place at Waterways Ireland from the 5th- 8th March! Over the four day period we had twelve different schools and over 300 students take part in our workshops across four different waterways.
Events and activities were led by our Engineering teams across the Barrow, Erne, North Shannon and Lower Bann waterways. Providing students with opportunities to see first-hand some of the engineering projects undertaken by Waterways Ireland. From automated lock systems to lifting bridges to hands on engineering based workshops to aqueducts.... there was something for everybody!
Engineers Week is coordinated by Engineers Ireland and is a platform to highlight engineering as a career and recognize the importance of the continually evolving engineering profession. Each year Waterways Ireland Engineers share their expertise by leading hands on workshops, giving presentations and hosting site visits with local school groups which always prove extremely popular, booking up well in advance.
