Second Level Schools

Strong established links between the Engineering Department and Second Levels Schools both local and further afield have been the mainstay for the Department for many years. Such links give Second Level Schools the ability to introduce their students to a snapshot of the Engineering way of life within ITT while giving also them the opportunity to explore a possible career path within the Engineering discipline

As a second level school, if you are interested to see what we can offer or assist with in introducing your 5th or 6th year students to Engineering at ITT please feel free to contact us

Some of these initiatives include:


Taster Sessions

Our Second level school taster sessions involve students participating in some Engineering Activities to give them a small taste of Engineering life in ITT .With a tour of the facilities giving the students an opportunity to see our own 3rd level students at work in our Labs.


Transition Year Radio Project

The Transistion year project developed in 2008,  is  a collaboration between the School of Engineering and the School of Humanities. The project involves a second level, Transition Year Class participating in the design and programme structure of their own radio programme, as presented by the Transition class themselves. The radio programme is broadcasted live through ITTFms radio broadcast station which is situated on Campus
