Multi-engine flight with student in final stage of flight training before his examination. During an ILS approach to vny airport, the tower cleared us for a touch-and-go. The student touched down to the right of the centerline. After about 200 yards the student pwred up and as the plane started to break ground it veered to the right. I immediately put my hand over his hand to verify that he had the throttles all the way off, and at the same time applied pressure to the left rudder. The right propeller spun to a stop, the engine had quit and we continued to taxi on the grass to the taxiway to the right and parallel to the runway. In the process, apparently the bottom of the plastic cowling on the right side bounced off a sign and broke the oil quick drain. Another bounce put a small hole in the bottom metal skin about 3 ft back, and then bent the flap. Minor damage to the airplane, no injuries or structural damage to the plane.

Title: A PA34-200 ON A TOUCH-AND-GO MANEUVER EXPERIENCED THE R ENG FAIL AT START OF LIFTOFF. ACFT VEERED R AND EXITED THE RWY INCURRING MINOR ACFT DAMAGE.
Narrative: MULTI-ENG FLT WITH STUDENT IN FINAL STAGE OF FLT TRAINING BEFORE HIS EXAM. DURING AN ILS APCH TO VNY ARPT, THE TWR CLRED US FOR A TOUCH-AND-GO. THE STUDENT TOUCHED DOWN TO THE R OF THE CTRLINE. AFTER ABOUT 200 YARDS THE STUDENT PWRED UP AND AS THE PLANE STARTED TO BREAK GND IT VEERED TO THE R. I IMMEDIATELY PUT MY HAND OVER HIS HAND TO VERIFY THAT HE HAD THE THROTTLES ALL THE WAY OFF, AND AT THE SAME TIME APPLIED PRESSURE TO THE L RUDDER. THE R PROP SPUN TO A STOP, THE ENG HAD QUIT AND WE CONTINUED TO TAXI ON THE GRASS TO THE TXWY TO THE R AND PARALLEL TO THE RWY. IN THE PROCESS, APPARENTLY THE BOTTOM OF THE PLASTIC COWLING ON THE R SIDE BOUNCED OFF A SIGN AND BROKE THE OIL QUICK DRAIN. ANOTHER BOUNCE PUT A SMALL HOLE IN THE BOTTOM METAL SKIN ABOUT 3 FT BACK, AND THEN BENT THE FLAP. MINOR DAMAGE TO THE AIRPLANE, NO INJURIES OR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO THE PLANE.
