Graduate Evening (Dublin)

On Tuesday, 8 November, the Republic of Ireland Branch will host their annual Graduate Evening, in conjunction with the Irish National Group of IABSE and UCD’s Struct Soc. This event offers engineering students a chance to learn more about the various career paths available to them following graduation and will be of particular benefit to final-year students. On the evening three recent graduates will make presentations detailing their personal experiences, and will answer questions from the audience. This year the speakers will be:

  • Niamh Gibbons – Niamh studied civil, structural and environmental engineering at Trinity College Dublin at both bachelors and masters level. Following graduation, she worked for Grontmij (formerly Carl Bro) in their bridge team on highways projects in Ireland and Scotland. Currently Niamh is a PhD student at University College Dublin studying the assessment of masonry arch bridges.
  • David Deally – David is a Design Engineer with Arup in the Dublin office. He graduated from Trinity College Dublin with an Honours Degree in Civil Engineering in 2010. David has experience working with the Eurocode and finite element packages, in particular Sofistik, for 3D modelling and long term analysis of flat slabs.
  • Julie Harkin – Julie is a graduate engineer from University College Dublin with a MSc in Durability of Structures from Queen’s University Belfast. Currently, Julie is working as a bridge engineer with Roughan & O’Donovan and has gained experience working on cable-stayed bridge analyses, strain monitoring and inspection of bridges. She also has experience in traffic and transport engineering, having undertaken work on network improvement schemes and traffic modelling.

The evening promises to be highly informative and is open to all interested members of the public.
