Imagine an engineering degree…

Designed WITH Industry FOR Industry

To develop Adaptable and Flexible Engineers who will solve problems that don’t even exist yet!

Imagine an engineering degree where…

You already have 2 years Industry experience BEFORE you graduate as an Engineer.

As a REEdI Student Engineer at MTU Kerry Campus you will be empowered with a skillset and personal attributes that employers look for.

Imagine an engineering degree where…


REEdI Student Engineers on work placement are taking the first steps in their career path and are firmly on a trajectory to an engineering role in their industry of choice.

Imagine a course where…

Developing SOFT SKILLS is as important as Technical Skills?

A Core element of the REEdI programme is project work ensuring REEdI Student Engineers gain those soft skills which are sought after in Industry.

Imagine a course where…

Instead of sitting and listening you will be able to challenge yourself, taking part in a hands-on exciting experience at the cutting edge of education!

You don’t need to Imagine anymore, welcome to REEdI!

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”
