PAST STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I studied Engineering Technology at OFI Dundalk. I chose it as it was a way of seeing which type of engineering I wanted to do in the future. The thing I found most enjoyable was the workshop classes. Doing a PLC course has really helped me, it was a path to see if I wanted to do mechanical or aviation studies.

Chris Carey Engineering Technology Graduate, 2020

The year spent in Ó Fiaich Institute was excellent preparation and provided me with the knowledge, skills and confidence to continue my studies at Level 8. The course content was varied, exciting and challenging. I have since progressed to study Level 8 Mechanical Engineering in DkIT. As a mature student, the Engineering Technology course was the perfect springboard to further my career.
