Projects with Industry

The REEdI programme is a new way of teaching engineering in Ireland and will address the needs of industry for future ready industry students. The REEdI programme offers industry an opportunity to have engineering student in-situ working on everyday projects and tasks.

This allows for specialised students equipped with the just in time tools and knowledge needed for industry. Placement students bring real business benefits, as well as a wide range of key skills, new idea generation and most of all new energy to an organisation.
