In line with the mission statement of the institute the staff of the department endeavour to apply excellence in teaching, learning and research. The staff of the department seek to create an inclusive student centred environment, in line with the core values of the school.
The department is committed to the development of links between the schools, both primary and secondary, in the region, and the department. This is achieved in many ways, school visits (steps), development of transition year programmes (Engineer your future), participation in open days and school competitions run by the various professional bodies.
Since the introduction of science into national schools we are adopting some schools and assisting them in the development of the students in engineering and science.
The department is actively involved with the CALMAST group in the institute and has committed both time and resources to ensure the future of this ground-breaking group.
