Graduate Evening (Cork)

On Wednesday, 2 November, The Institution of Structural Engineers (Republic of Ireland Branch) in association with the Department of Civil, Structural & Environmental Engineering, Cork Institute of Technology will host a Graduate Evening. Recent graduates undertaking postgraduate research and graduates working across a range of engineering firms will give brief presentations sharing their experiences since graduating.

The aim of the evening is to provide an insight for students and other members of the structural engineering fraternity into what it is like for Graduate Engineers working with Consultants today and show the opportunities that are available for research. It is intended that the evening will be relatively informal and there will be ample time for questions and discussion. The speakers will be:

  • Daniel Goulding – Daniel is currently working with Bord Gáis Éireann on the 2010-2012 Graduate Programme. On graduating with a BEng. in Structural Engineering from Cork Institute of Technology in 2008, he began a Research Masters in Environmental Engineering primarily focussing on biogas utilisation in Ireland. Last year, Daniel upgraded his Masters research to a PhD and is conducting this research on a part-time basis in conjunction with Cork Institute of Technology.
  • Alan Leen – Alan studied Civil & Environmental Engineering at University College Cork and graduated in 2008. He joined Arup in 2008 and is currently working as a Project Engineer their Cork Office. Alan has experience working on projects such as Mallow Flood Relief Scheme, quay wall remedial works, and a number of flood risk assessments and flood studies.
  • David Hodge – David studied civil, structural and environmental engineering at Cork Institute of Technology and graduated in 2009. He is currently a PhD student in CIT studying the response of hollow core floors to applied actions. David won first prize for his paper at last year’s BCRI conference held in Cork.
  • James Browne – James studied Civil & Environmental Engineering at University College Cork and graduated in 2009. He worked as a graduating engineer with J Murphy & Sons Tunnelling Division in London before starting a PhD in renewable gas production from waste in the bioenergy and biofuels research group, Environmental Research Institute, UCC.
  • Michael Minehane – Michael graduated from Cork Institute of Technology with a BEng (Hons) degree in Structural Engineering in 2010 and a MEng degree in Structural Engineering in 2011. Michael won the 2010 Irish Concrete Society Sean de Courcy Award for his final year project on reinforced concrete corbelled joints. He is a Graduate Engineer with RPS in the Cork office where he is currently working on a number of bridge projects.
