Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

DIT wins Engineers Ireland ‘Best in Class’ Award 2017

Posted on November 14, 2017
The Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards, held in association with ESB, are presented each year in recognition of the achievements of engineers that have demonstrated exceptional engineering skills.

This year for the first time they have included an ‘Engineering Education’ Award, for which DIT was shortlisted along with teams from UCD, University of Limerick and Cork Institute of Technology.  

The 2017 Excellence Awards ceremony took place on Friday 10 November at the InterContinental Dublin, Ballsbridge, with RTE’s Seán O’Rourke as Master of Ceremonies.  To their delight, the DIT team, which was led by Una Beagon, was announced as the first recipient of the Engineering Education: Best in Class 2017 Award!

Una Beagon, who is Assistant Head, School of Civil and Structural Engineering in DIT, said “DIT are enthusiastic collaborators with industry, through case studies, community engagement projects and guest lectures and we were delighted to showcase our efforts through this initiative. We attest that our graduates should be discipline experts, collaborative workers, critical thinkers and problem solvers with sound ethical principles and a global vision.   

We used our submission to the Excellence in Engineering Awards to highlight the novel ways in which our enthusiastic lecturers enable students to develop those ‘graduate attributes’ which are so often the most difficult to engender in engineering students. We were delighted to be shortlisted for the Award as it recognises our good work in this regard”.

The DIT submission highlighted many initiatives within engineering programmes that offer students the opportunity to develop the DIT Graduate Attributes within their programme. These included the ‘Where there is no Engineer’ competition, an international student project with Rochester IT and the first-year design projects which give students an opportunity to work in teams on real and practical engineering problems.  The submission also highlighted some of the ways in which the College of Engineering and Built Environment is supporting female students and working with local schools for girls to encourage young women to consider a career in engineering.
