The diversity and range of career possibilities in engineering will be showcased at a special interactive event for students and jobseekers at IT Sligo on Thursday May 5.
The Engineering Expo is a free public event, bringing together leading national and international engineering practitioners along with training expertise in the sector, and schools from across the North West region.
The Expo will be held in IT Sligo’s Knocknarea Arena and is open to students, parents and jobseekers who are interested in finding out more about the vast array of jobs available in engineering, and the skills needed to get them.
“The purpose of the event is to highlight the vast range of career paths open to students and jobseekers,” explains Mary Nolan, the Engineering Expo Coordinator.
“There is a wonderful diversity within engineering – and this event will strive to illustrate that. Engineers are problem solvers, organisers, communicators, calculators and designers. They make a difference to people’s lives every day.”
