Process II are 1st runners up in the ESB Inter-Colleges Challenge - WOW!
UCC/PCE students First Runners-Up in ESB Inter-Colleges Challenge
The team representing UCC at the ESB Inter-Colleges Challenge in the IMI, Sandyford recently included three Process & Chemical Engineers, and came first Runners-Up to a strong TCD outfit.
The team was made up of the following members:
Hannah Bredin, 2nd Process & Chemical Engineering (Captain)
David Fogarty, 2nd Process & Chemical Engineering
Fionn Roche, 2nd Process & Chemical Engineering
Colin Maher, 2nd Finance
Nine institutions were represented at the event, in what was an extremely demanding challenge.
Proceedings got under way at lunchtime on Thursday 2nd November and the team then formally worked right through until 10:00pm (and then beyond).
On Friday the teams delivered two different presentations in the morning, each of which was followed by a Q&A session. Of the nine teams that participated the UCC team was shortlisted to the top three, alongside DCU and TCD.
After doing another pitch and Q&A session they came second overall behind TCD, following a long deliberation by the judges to make their final decision.
Congratulations to all the team members; they can be extremely proud of themselves as they were great ambassadors for themselves, their families, their programme and school, and UCC.
Congrats is due too to their lecturer Dermot O’Sullivan for his work and support around this initiative as part of the associated Engineering Communications module.
