Engineers Week 2020 was launched recently. At the launch Engineers Ireland STEPS Programme announced systems engineer Fionnghuala O’Reilly, Miss Universe Ireland and NASA Datanaut as Engineers Week Ambassador in national ‘call to action’ for Engineers Week 2020, taking place from 29 February – 6 March.

At the launch it was noted that more than of half of Engineers Ireland’s members believe that outdated attitudes, among both women and men generally, are still obstacles to women entering the engineering sector. Engineering organisations and role models urged to participate in Engineers Week to showcase the dynamic world of engineering to children in their local community.
