Limerick Institute of Technology and ESB Networks are delighted to announce their collaboration and are calling all qualified electricians to apply for the Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (Level 7) – Apprenticeship Programme

The apprenticeship programme, which has been running since 2015, is aimed at up-skilling electricians and network technicians to a recognised engineering degree qualification, through a programme of work-based learning and completion of technical modules in college.  Graduates of the programme will be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) Qualification at Level 7 on the national framework of qualifications and will be eligible for progression to further professional qualifications.

“We are delighted to offer the Apprenticeship in Industrial Electrical Engineering to a selection of our technical staff in ESB Networks” said Alan Kelly, Competency Approvals Manager in ESB Networks. “The continuous competency development of all our staff is a key enabler that will allow our organisation realise its target for a “brighter future” for all. The content of this programme is very suitable in catering for the broad technical requirements of our business.”

“The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at LIT is so proud of our Industrial Electrical Engineering Apprenticeship programme” said Dr. Maura Clancy, Head of Department. “From its inception it has been a flagship in best practice: government, industry and academia working together to ensure a pipeline of highly qualified and motivated industrial electrical engineers”.
