SIRUS support students of Building Services Engineering
Frank Caul and James Byrne (DIT graduate) joined forces in 1989 to form the very successful company Sirus Group. The Sirus Group employs almost 100 people, many of those Building Services students from DIT and operates across Ireland and mainland Europe. The SIRUS team specialise in the control and management of building systems across a diverse range of sectors including industry, education, retail, hospitality, healthcare, life sciences, data centres and airports. The team work in an exciting area of energy engineering and sustainable infrastructure design.
The buildings in which we spend 90% of our time are responsible for about half of global energy use. This energy use contributes significantly to global greenhouse gas emissions. Society urgently needs exceptional engineers that specialise in energy and buildings to help realise quickly, ambitious climate change targets for the built environment. To succeed in this worthwhile goal, the building services engineer needs to have the ability to stay focused on a goal despite obstacles or in other words to have grit and perseverance.
The aim of the SIRUS Scholarship for Engineering is to award passionate and motivated students who will make their mark on the built environment. Students interested in applying for the SIRUS Scholarships will be asked to demonstrate (i) where they have displayed a stick-with-it attitude and determination that was maintained over time despite failure or setbacks and (ii) their desire to impact society for the better.
