From the beginnings of the college as we know it, the Engineering School has very much been the heart and part of the foundations of the Institute. During its 50-year history Engineering education has morphed and progressed in both its training and outputs and thousands of highly regarded and skilled graduates have left their impact both nationally and internationally.

Dr. Tom Dooley, Head of Engineering School said at the event ‘The Engineering School in DkIT has played a pivotal role in defining and developing the region over the last 50 years. This exhibition is very much a celebration of everyone that has passed through the Engineering School doors and a commemoration of those who have supported and delivered the high-quality education that continues to be a hallmark of the School. Engineering in its very essence is the creative application of scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes that safely realise solutions to the needs of society. Over 5 decades the School has produced craftpersons, technicians and engineers capable of applying scientific principles to solve problems for the advancement and development of our region , the State and society  generally.’

The School of Engineering at DkIT is comprised of three engineering departments which includes the Department of Electronic and Mechanical Engineering, the Department of the Built Environment and the Department of Engineering Trades & Civil Engineering. The School offers a broad range of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level across areas including mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, civil engineering, construction management, architectural technology, building surveying, in addition to the provision of engineering trades.

For the past two decades and particularly over the last decade DKIT has further developed its programmes and research into the existential societal challenges of climate change and sustainability.  .

The exhibition is open to the public, 20th May 10am – 5pm, Saturday 21st May 10am-2pm, Monday 23rd May to Thursday 26th May 10am – 6pm
