Engineering

01-December-22

Leaving Certificate Engineering is the study of mechanical engineering for students in the senior cycle of post-primary education. Students develop the skills and initiative in the planning, development and realization of technological projects in a safe manner.

Practical resourcefulness, creativity and design in the planning and development of technological projects are emphasised. There are two main areas of study: workshop processes, and materials and technology.

Engineering is assessed at two levels, Ordinary level and Higher level.

There are 3 Parts to the exam.

1. A Technology Project Based on a brief sent to schools during 6th year. This is worth 25 % of the overall marks for Higher Level Engineering and 20% at Ordinary Level
2. A Practical Skills Exam which takes place for 6 hours, in schools in May. This is worth 25% for Higher Level and 30% for Ordinary Level Engineering Students
3. A Written Exam, lasting 3 hours at Higher Level and 2.5 Hours at Ordinary Level, makes up the remainder of marks.
