This article reports on research carried out over five academic years into the learning styles of engineering students on a number of Level 7, Level 8 bachelor programmes and Level 9 masters programmes in the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) using the index of learning styles survey developed by Felder and Soloman (1991). The article explores the results of the research placing them particularly in the national context. The most significant finding is that awareness of the strongly visual learning style of these cohorts of students is likely to be used to improve the learning environment in the future.
