The Engineering Expo is an interactive, information sharing event which is a new and exciting collaboration between IT Sligo and Industry.

It is a chance for potential engineering students to gain knowledge of companies, interact with alumni and network with professional engineers. Participants at the Engineering Expo include Fortune 500 industry leaders, indigenous industry, and small and medium size companies from across Ireland.

The Expo is open to the public and we encourage public engagement throughout the event. Our mission is to connect students, industry, and the community by inspiring future generations of engineers.

What will I see?

The Knocknarea Arena at IT Sligo will host an impressive line up of Engineering companies and exhibitors from across Ireland. Keynote speakers providing a real insight into what a career in Engineering is really like. The primary focus will be on Mechanical, Mechatronic, Electronic and Precision & Design Engineering.

Each company will showcase various aspects of the role engineering plays in their companies – from automaton machinery, products, and medical devices to moulded products to solid works stations to student projects – just a sample of the “toys” engineers get to play with every day!

Every company will have engineers from all levels in the organization from recent graduates to Senior Engineering Managers. Every entry level will be represented from apprenticeship, Level 6, Level 7 and Level 8.
