The major showcase will offer secondary school students, guidance counsellors, parents and teachers an opportunity to meet more than 30 companies in the region to talk about a future in a highly skilled, well paid engineering career in the region.
Representatives from both indigenous and multi-national companies will be on hand to meet students and view their most cutting edge technologies, witness demonstrations by their full time engineers and receive first hand information about an exciting and ever developing career path.
Staff from LIT, UL and Limerick-Clare Education and Training Board will also be on hand to outline the various courses and routes that are available to students and provide information on engineering careers in the Mid-West.
