A University Degree where…

You already have 2 years Industry experience BEFORE graduation as an Engineer

Student engineers that graduate with a REEdI Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from MTU Kerry Campus will be perfectly placed to become engineers of the future for Ireland’s manufacturing sector.

Why become a REEdI Industry partner

Access to well rounded engineering graduates

The REEdI programme offers industry an opportunity to have engineering student in-situ working on everyday projects and tasks. Our graduates are different because our programme places equal importance on soft and technical skills.

Meet our student engineers


I really like the blended approach to learning which this course has with the two-year work placement


I like the hands on part of the programme including the welding.


I chose this programme because it uses a work based learning approach.


Since I was young, I’ve always wanted to be an engineer.


I was always interested in working with my hands and I’m more proficient with doing hand-craft.


What drew me to the programme was the 2 years paid work placement.

Some of our Frequently Asked Questions

REEdI is a ground-breaking approach to engineering education in Ireland, funded through the Higher Education Authorities (HEA) Human Capital Initiative (HCI) Pillar 3. Student engineers that graduate with a REEdI Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering will be perfectly placed to become Engineers of the future for Irelands Manufacturing sector.

Ireland has a shortage of Engineering Graduates with the skills that the manufacturing sector requires. REEdI are addressing this by co-designing the REEdI Engineering Curricula with our industry partners and embedding world class models of teaching and assessment throughout the curriculum.

The project is co-ordinated across two higher education institutes in Ireland: MTU, and UL. Charles Sturt University in Australia and Harper Adams University in the UK bring an international dimension to the project.

Engineers can create fantastic new technological advancements that can improve the way we live. Engineers design & develop materials, processes & systems in a sustainable way. The work Engineers do ensure products such as medical devices and pharmaceuticals are produced safely and efficiently to enhance, prolong and save people’s lives. Being an engineer gives you the opportunity to make a huge difference to individuals, to society and to the world.

You will have 2 years’ work experience in world class companies, so you can earn as you learn. Future proof your employment opportunities and increase your market value by having valuable work experience prior to even graduating! You will also get to learn in teams, on projects and by using immersive technologies (Virtual and Augmented Reality) compared to a traditional engineering degree where you learn mainly in the classroom and in laboratories.

What they say…


“Employers require access to Engineering Graduates with the right blend of practical, technical and professional skills to ensure that talent does not become a significant barrier to growth for their businesses; through the work and vision of REEdI, we aim to set the agenda for Engineering Education regionally and nationally. We will do this by championing equality, diversity, student centred and student directed approaches to learning, bringing in significant elements of eLearning, work-based learning and innovative technologies such as Virtual and Augmented Reality to provide an immersive learning experience; all to create the next generation of Engineers for our region and our Island”

Dr. Fiona Boyle

Director of REEdI


“This project will place Munster Technological University at the forefront of international undergraduate engineering education provision, making it the go-to university for human capital to fill our manufacturing organizations’ engineering talent pipeline on a national and international stage”

Professor Maggie Cusack

President at MTU


“With the REEdI programme we can nurture meaningful work placements, help our business grow with high calibre candidates, embed graduates longer to genuinely add value, so we can work to build a future together”
