REEdI Portfolio

The REEdI portfolio gives potential students an opportunity to showcase a sample of their best work. Students have an opportunity to gain points based on their aptitude for solving a basic problem. Where students have school projects which are relevant, these can be used. For students who do not have project-based subjects, we would encourage them to use a simple day to day problem they have come across and solved.


AT REEdI we are looking for you to demonstrate your interest in Engineering. This is your chance to show your innovative, creative, problem solving skills. There is no standard digital portfolio but the following guidelines apply. We will accept the following for the portfolio – projects undertaken as part of:

  • Leaving Certificate Engineering/ Design/ Construction Studies/ Computer Science (with relevance to engineering)
  • SciFest
  • Young Scientist of the Year
  • Junior Entrepreneur of the Year
  • Other (e.g. mature students – projects within their industry/ work experience, F1 in schools projects, etc)
Why do you need a portfolio?

Motivated: We want to make sure that you want to do Engineering.

Problem Solver: We want to make sure that Problem Solving is something you enjoy doing.

Team-Worker: We want to make sure that you like working with others

Adaptable: We want to make sure that you are flexible and open to new ways of learning in University and in Industry.
