UCC hosts Munster Finals of LEGO League

Students and teachers from schools across Munster gathered in University College Cork (UCC) on Saturday, 27 January for the Cork region Finals of the FIRST® LEGO® League. The FIRST® LEGO® League is a major global programme that introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to secondary school children through fun, hands-on learning. The competition challenges young people to design, build, and programme robots using LEGO. First LEGO League offers a fun way to engage STEM, weaving soft skills into real world scenario's that require coding, researching and presentations across four judging criteria.  Students were judged across four areas, presentation on an Innovation Project, discussing their Robot Design and Strategy, performance at the Robot Game and Core Values. The FIRST® LEGO® League is a collaboration between LearnIT, the UCC School of Engineering and Engineers without Borders Student Society, with the direct support from Qualcomm.

MSc Redesigning the Post-Industrial City [RePIC] is a two-year Taught Joint-Master Degree with 120 ECTS at Level 9 NQF - offered by eight of the 10 European Partner Universities in the UNIC alliance. It was the first Post-Graduate Programme seeking accreditation under this framework inside UCC and within the UNIC Alliance – and the first Course nationally (Ireland) to use the “European Approach” for the Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes.  As an inter-disciplinary Programme, the lead academic units in UCC are Architecture and Geography who are represented by the Joint Programme Directors, Dr Jason O’Shaughnessy and Dr Denis Linehan. Colleagues in UCC’s Civic and Community Engagement Office are also involved in delivering a number of integrated CityLabs as part of the Programme. The programme began in September 2023 and will use the ECTS credit system to facilitate the recognition of qualifications and mobility periods abroad – and   students are currently in Ruhr-Universität Bochum before coming to UCC in January 2024.
