    3rd School of Engineering Industry & Open Day is a huge success!

    On Friday, 20th March 2015, the 3rd School of Engineering Industry & Open Day, took place in Devere Hall, Aras na Mac Leinn, UCC. 

    Final Year students from Civil & Environmental, Electrical & Electronic, Energy, and Process & Chemical Engineering displayed scientific posters based on their Research Projects and were available to discuss these with the attendees.

    In attendance were 410 students from 46 schools across Munster, as well as representatives from industry, so for some, it was standing room only in the balcony of Devere Hall. The talks were excellent and there were so many questions from the floor, that they couldn't all be taken within the time allowed. Our thanks to the speakers and to all of the schools who came to listen and learn more about the UCC School of Engineering. We hope to see you all here studying Engineering in the near future.
