The North Cork Engineering Cluster (NCEC) initiative of Mallow Development Partnership (MDP)
links education and training services with businesses to create awareness and jobs. This exciting new venture brings together a broad range of stakeholders and aims to promote the areas of Engineering and Technology
, with the ultimate goal of increasing employment opportunities, business opportunities and the success of engineering companies in the locality. Through education providers, local schools, industry partners and local businesses, we believe that common goals can be achieved for the ultimate benefit of North Cork and its people.
To this end, the NCEC have joined forces with Cork Institute of Technology (CIT)
and the Cork Education & Training Board (Cork ETB)
, along with 5 schools in the North Cork area
, to develop a programme to increase the awareness and highlight the importance of STEM subjects in schools.
The first event which has been organised in this programme, is a STEM Roadshow
, which takes place in the Mallow GAA Complex, Carrigoon, at 7pm on Tuesday 26th April 2016
. The Roadshow offers the chance to see what CIT & the Cork ETB can offer in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics
The Roadshow will help to ensure that students, together with their supporters, teachers and guidance counselors, can explore all options in a friendly environment.
