Building Engineering students address climate issues

Two talented DIT Building Engineering students have been awarded the inaugural SIRUS Scholarship ? they are Zoe Elliott and Pauric O?Connell, both in their fourth year of the BE (Hons) in Building Engineering. The SIRUS Scholarship is an initiative created by James Byrne, a DIT graduate, and Frank Caul, who are co-founders of the successful Irish engineering company SIRUS Group. ?SIRUS are always looking for good people?, says Frank Caul, ?we prefer to employ the graduates from Building Engineering in DIT as they are able to hit the ground running and contribute to the company quickly; this also means that these graduates climb the career ladder very quickly.? Ciara Ahern, Head of Building Engineering in DIT, says the DIT Bachelor of Engineering in Building Engineering is a unique course in Ireland and more graduates coming through the course will help to meet strong industry demand.
