The HighTechElec TY work experience programme is a collaboration between CEIA, Tyndall, UCC, CIT and CEIA member companies, developed to give TY students an insight into the high tech careers open to them in industry and academia. Participating students will undertake a week of physics, electronics and technology based workshops, lectures, career talks, and industry placement, culminating in an innovation competition – the TechnoDen. Through meeting and working with scientists and engineers, students will get firsthand experience of the choice of careers available to them. This unique structured one-week programme will provide a positive experience for pupils genuinely interested in taking up a science or engineering career.
