About Us STEPS was established in 2000 to encourage primary and post primary students to explore the world of science and engineering. The STEPS programme encourages primary and post-primary students to explore the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics while also promoting engineering as a career choice. The value of the programme has been formally recognised by Government and is a key element of the national Discover Science & Engineering programme. It is managed by Engineers Ireland and is supported by the Department of Education & Science, Forfás, FÁS and a number of major engineering employers.
The aims of the STEPS programme are:
Raise awareness among students about engineering as a career choice
Encourage a positive attitude towards careers in engineering, science and technology
Promote a greater understanding of the role/contribution of engineering in society and how engineering is relevant to our everyday lives
Highlight the advantages, diversity, opportunities and excellent rewards offered by a career in the engineering profession
