Top Marks in Chartered Exam for DIT Graduate

 22 August, 2005 DIT Graduate, Peter Brunner from County Kerry, has won the top prize for achieving the highest score for the concrete question in his Chartered Membership examination taken through the Institution of Structural Engineers. 

775 students took the grueling seven hour exam, renowned within the engineering community for being the toughest test of engineering competence.  That only two students received prizes for high scores is testimony to the degree of difficulty posed by the examination.

Peter completed the Degree in Structural Engineering in DIT, Bolton Street in June 2001. 

Commenting on Peter's achievement, Mr. Joseph Kindregan, Head of DIT's Department  of Civil and Structural Engineering said; "We are delighted that Peter has been so successful in the Chartered exam.  Becoming a Chartered Structural Engineer is a benchmark in a structural engineers career and Peter has passed with flying colours."

Peter currently works for O'Connor Sutton Cronin in Dublin and for the past year has been the structural engineer for the Riverside 2 Complex in Dublin's Grand Canal docklands, a commercial and residential complex
