A new partnership has been announced between Dublin-based Code Institute and Engineers Ireland.

A €100 discount is available for members of Engineers Ireland who wish to upskill on their IT knowledge.

Diploma in Tech Fundamentals

The DITF course will teach engineers how to leverage the benefits of Big Data and the Cloud. It will improve communications between engineers, IT teams and other tech colleagues. Participating engineers will also grasp the core principles of coding. They will also put themselves in a position to make more effective decisions by understanding IT development processes. They will have a clearer knowledge of skills, languages and IT tools on the IT side of upcoming projects.

Jim Cassidy, CEO of Code Institute, said; “Partnering with Engineers Ireland is a huge honour for us. Also, it is great to be recognised as one of the education providers who can contribute to the development of the competencies of a Chartered Engineer.”

Commenting on the partnership, Dee Kehoe, CPD Director at Engineers Ireland said; “Engineers Ireland is delighted to partner with the Code Institute to provide our members with the opportunity to undertake this new Diploma in Tech Fundamentals and further their IT skills and abilities. Digital technologies play an increasingly important part in the role of the engineer and will continue to impact the engineering sector.”
