Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence in Engineering Education

This year, 2007, marks The Golden Jubilee of Professional Engineering Education at the Bolton Street Campus of The Dublin Institute of Technology. Fifty years ago, in 1957, the first graduating class of engineers was eligible to join professional societies. To celebrate, the Faculty of Engineering at DIT will hold a series of events throughout the year.

The first such event will be a talk by Professor Gerry Byrne entitled 'The Engineer of the Future'. The lecture will take place in Lecture Hall 259, DIT Bolton Street at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 2nd May, 2007.

Professor Gerry Byrne is a distinguished graduate of DIT Bolton Street and has also lectured in DIT Bolton Street. In 2005 he received an honorary doctorate from DIT. He is currently the Dean of Engineering at UCD. Gerry's talk will look at the contribution DIT has made to professional engineering over the last fifty years and the changing role of the engineer of the future. All are welcome to attend for what promises to be a very interesting talk.
