IT Sligo Mechanical Engineer Projects

The projects on display at the 3rd year Mechanical Engineering project exhibition in the Institute recently demonstrated the diversity of the skills honed in the course, and the opportunities that can arise from studying it. Major design and build projects are undertaken by all students and the projects range from Drift Cars and Mini Dumpers to Land Yachts and Bale Splitters.
