On Thursday October 5th, the Science Department in Coláiste Mhuire held their annual Engineering Seminar for 3rd year and Transition Year students together with ninety students from Loreto College. A host of speakers from local companies attended and presented on various aspects of their companies. This gave students a first-hand glimpse into working life in the engineering field.
Speakers on the day included Stephen Lynam from Trend Technologies, Brian Sheehan from RDS, Rachel Raleigh TEG, Ann O’Connell from IMR, Niall O’Reilly from Mergon and Noel O’Connor from PEM.
On the back of this seminar, students have been tasked with an engineering project and have been given one month to complete it. The closing date for projects is the 10th of November. The local companies have also provided sponsorship of €1,500 for the winners. Get designing boys!
