A quick update from the ISE team.
Over the past number of weeks, ISE was delighted to host a number of face-to-face events. Following years of restrictions, zoom calls and a very quiet university campus we returned to face-to-face with a bang. 🙂
Stripes Rob Heaton's visit to the UL campus
At the end of May, we had a visit from Rob Heaton, a software engineer with Stripe. Rob spent 4 days working closely with the ISE team on course content for the first cohort of students arriving in September. We also had the opportunity for ISE co-director Stephen Kinsella to have a chat with Rob to learn more about him, discussing Rob’s career in software engineering, the work he does at Stripe, and his thoughts on what will make ISE unique.
Rob's insights in this interview are fascinating, have a look!
Covering all areas
The first week of June was very exciting, we had close to 100 ISE visitors, on-campus in-person.
The IAB (Industry Advisory Board) met to ensure ISE is prepared to give the very best to our first cohort of students arriving at the beginning of September.
