Liebherr Container Cranes will hold an engineering scholarship open evening on Thursday next, May 2from 5pm, to provide information to interested students, parents and teachers.

Liebherr engineers from a variety of disciplines will be available on the evening to provide practical advice to students regarding engineering as a career choice, and to show examples of their daily work.

The event provides opportunities for Leaving Certificate and first year college students to gain a third-level qualification, from engineering disciplines such as electrical, mechanical, structural, automation or mechatronics.

Successful applicants will benefit from an all course fees paid programme for their selected college, complete work experience during summer holidays and college placements throughout the course, will also be part of the learning experience. Upon completion, a graduate role in the company is assured.

“One of the key elements of the scholarship is the practical experience the students will gain at Liebherr during their summer and college work placements,” Liebherr’s Managing Director – Engineering Charlie McCarthy said. “The tradition of both a practical and theoretical education is synonymous with Liebherr. The students will work in engineering departments throughout the company, under the guidance of senior engineers where they will benefit from seeing the application of engineering principles on modern high tech world class products.”
