Boston Scientific gave a tech-talk and information seminar on career opportunities at Institute of Technology Carlow today for 3rd and 4th Year Electronic and Mechanical Engineering students.
The event coincided with the recent donation by Boston Scientific to Institute of Technology Carlow of high-tech laboratory equipment; specifically, BeamWorks laser equipment and Leica microscopes, worth in excess of €100,000 see the images below for more details. The equipment, organised by Dr. Darren Kavanagh, will be used for promoting teaching and research excellence here at the Institute.
Speakers at the tech-talk included: Peter Keogh, formerly of ASTRON institute for radio astronomy in the Netherlands and a test engineer at Boston Scientific; and John Cheevers, a senior production supervisor / HR business partner at Boston Scientific Clonmel.
Commenting on the donation, Dr. Darren Kavanagh lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering said, “We want to use this opportunity to thank Boston Scientific (Clonmel) for the equipment donation and for coming to give a very insightful technical talk on the core technologies in medical devices being developed at Boston Scientific in Ireland, as well as career opportunities. This equipment will form an extremely valuable resource for both teaching excellence at both undergraduate and postgraduate level as well as for advanced industry focused research, development and innovation (RDI) projects. We look forward to building on this initiative towards fostering a strong collaborative partnership with Boston Scientific into the future.”
