Engineering Metalwork Room

metalwork

Engineering is a technology-based subject that aims to develop students’ technical skills and knowledge in an Engineering context. The subject has three elements.

In their Leaving Certificate year, students design and make a project to a prescribed design brief. This promotes initiative and creativity in the planning and development of technological projects. A separate practical exam at the end of the year tests the students’ skills at manufacturing components from a detailed working drawing. In the theory component of the course students study such topics as metal-joining processes, polymers, materials testing, manufacturing processes, machining, electronics and mechanisms.
