Congratulations to M.Sc. Graduates

(13 Nov 2013)

The latest graduates from NITL’s postgraduate programmes were conferred with their awards at the DIT graduation ceremony at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Saturday. As noted by DIT President Professor Brian Norton during the ceremony, the graduation event is an important day in the academic calendar of DIT but, more importantly, a hugely important milestone in the lives of our graduates. NITL’s graduates were conferred with their M.Sc. degrees along with graduates from a number of Schools that are part of DIT’s College of Engineering and Built Environment.

There was a mix of graduates from the Executive Masters Programme (DT352) and the full-time M.Sc. programme (DT351). Graduates from the former are supply chain and logistics professionals from most major sectors of the Irish economy including food and drink (e.g. Pat Treacy of Diageo), electronics (e.g. Mark Whelan of Intel) life sciences (e.g. Eugene Hickey of Novartis) and the public sector (e.g. Lt Cdr Aedh McGinn of the Irish Defence Forces). It was particularly gratifying to see the first group of participants who were funded under the Springboard initiative receive their M.Sc. degrees. Many graduates from the full-time programme already have job offers – this again points to the continuing high level of demand for graduates with the knowledge and skills developed by the NITL programmes. NITL offers its sincere congratulations to all graduates, as well as to their families and friends.

NITL offer its particular congratulations to former member of staff John Grimes who was conferred with his Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) degree. This was awarded for his research on vehicle technology and design which was supervised by Dr. Shaun McFadden and Prof. David Taylor.

NITL’s Director Dr. Edward Sweeney also congratulated Prof. John Monaghan of Trinity College Dublin who was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate during the ceremony. Prof. Monaghan was one of Edward’s lecturers during his Trinity undergraduate days and his research in mechanical and manufacturing engineering has been widely published. John is also well known for his work with St. Vincent de Paul.

NITL looks forward to working with its new graduates over the coming years as they embark on the next phases of their careers. Armed with the knowledge and skills acquired during their M.Sc. programmes the future looks very promising.
