Engineering is a broad course, covering both theory and practice. Studying this subject helps give you a knowledge of the materials, an understanding of the processes and the ability to safely use the skills and tools to do practical work. There are three assessments in this course:
Everything you need to study Leaving Cert Engineering
Mechanical engineering materials, processes and technological applications, it's all covered in the Leaving Cert Engineering course. Here is how Studyclix can help make your studying easier.
This is based on a brief released by the SEC and students are required to submit a model and design folio based on it. This is worth 25% of the overall marks for higher-level engineering and 30% at ordinary level.
This takes place for 6 hours (2 three-hour sessions) in schools in May. Students are required to show skills of drilling, machining, fitting and precision filing. This is worth 25% for higher level and 30% for ordinary level.
This exam lasts 3 hours at higher level (worth 50%) and 2.5 hours at ordinary level (worth 40%). The exam is made up of 8 questions where students must answer Question 1 and any other four questions from the remaining seven.
