There were remarkable achievements by students of CIT’s Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at the Annual Dinner of the Institution of Structural Engineers which was held on the 15th February, Trinity College, Dublin.
The Student Prize 2013, which is awarded for final year project report and presentation, was presented to James Barry, a graduate of the BEng (Hons) in Structural Engineering Programme. James’ project supervisors were John J Murphy and Kieran Ruane.
The Technician Student Prize 2013 runner-up is Nick Bailey, BEng in Civil Engineering (project supervisor Andrew Macilwraith) - this project already won the Wood Marketing Federation Engineering Award last summer.
The Technician Student Prize 2012, an award held over from last year, went to Andrew Meehan & Paul Glavin, BEng in Civil Engineering (project supervisor Ted McKenna).
“The sweep of awards in the three categories presented gave rise to much talk in the Dining Hall in TCD”, said Des Walsh, Head of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, CIT, “it is a fantastic achievement which will be difficult to surpass.”
All of the graduates are continuing their studies in the Department; James is a student of the taught MEng in Structural Engineering while Andrew, Paul and Nick are completing the BEng (Hons) in Structural Engineering programme.
The achievement is testament to the quality of the graduates and further recognition of the excellence of structural engineering education at CIT.
The Department continues to enhance its reputation in industry for the high quality of its graduates.
