The Teaching Education Council has recognised the Letterkenny Institute of Technology's BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering as an approved qualification for teaching ‘Technology' in secondary schools. This means that the Mechanical Engineering degree is now recognised by the Teaching Council for this Leaving Certificate subject giving graduates further career options.
Dr. John Doran, LYIT, commenting on this new status said, "This has been a real collaborative effort. I wish to thank everyone for their support and effort in the application process. This gives our students an edge over similar programmes in Mechanical Engineering and broadens their choices to include teaching at secondary school level."
