Minister Quinn promotes Engineers Week

The Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn T.D., today joined Engineers Ireland in encouraging students, schools and parents to get involved in Engineers Week 2012, which will be taking place across Ireland this week 27th February and 4th March 2012.

The week-long series of activities across the country is run by Engineers Ireland and is a campaign held annually to promote engineering as a career and the importance of the profession to Ireland.

The theme for Engineers Week 2012 is "Connecting Our Lives". During the week events for students of all ages, aimed at highlighting the importance of engineering to our daily lives, will take place across the country.

Throughout the week volunteer engineers will enter schools to explain the importance of maths and engineering employers across Ireland will welcome the public on organised tours of their facilities so they can learn more about the vital role engineers play in the community.

Speaking today John Power, Director General, Engineers Ireland, said: "Engineers Week will run from the 27th of February until the 4th of March. The week is focused on highlighting the career opportunities available to Irish students in engineering. We'd encourage students, teachers and parents to log onto our website and find an event close to them. We hope that by the end of the week people will have a better understanding of what engineers do and specifically within the organisations in their local area."

They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
