AVMT graduate finalist in Engineers Ireland Innovative Student Competition 2013

Congratulations and commiserations to Darren McKenna AVMT graduate one of three finalists in the Engineers Ireland Innovative Student Engineers Award 2013 Level 7 competition at Engineers Ireland yesterday.

Darrens project is SecureLine, an Internet-enabled home alarm system and his presentation was excellent. The project was supported by Intel.

The Level 7 award was won by Alistair Chambers from IT Carlow for his project Digital in cab moisture reader. The other level 7 finalists were from IT Sligo led by Aoife Hegarty with their project Wave energy converter. The competition is organised by Engineers Ireland and sponsored by Siemens.

This recognition of the innovative work done in the AVMT 3rd year projects is a great accolade for the programme and particularly Darren. Thanks to all the programme team and congratulations to Darren.
