KBS student, David Monaghan (BBS) and UL engineering students Danny Fehilly, Patrick Lo, Eoin Hann will represent Ireland at an international engineering and commerce competition in Montreal next year.
They qualified for the competition when they won the ESB Inter Colleges Challenge.
The competition, now in its third year, offers engineering and finance students the opportunity to apply their knowledge to develop innovative, creative and commercially focused solutions to real life energy-focused challenges.
Thirty-two students from eight colleges participated in the Irish competition at the Irish Management Institute (IMI) earlier this month.
The teams were allocated just seven hours to research and design a solution to a complex engineering and financial energy challenge, after which they presented to an expert panel of judges.
The challenge focused on developing energy solutions for small to medium enterprises.
Presenting the winning prizes, Pat O’Doherty, Chief Executive of ESB, congratulated the UL team who, he said, “won out in the face of such stiff competition. The high level of skills and creativity showcased by all teams was exceptional, as too was their understanding of the needs of the energy market and consumers”.
“I commend each of the students and their mentors for the time and effort they invested in this competition. I wish the winning team the very best as they represent their college and the country in the international competition in Montreal next March,” he continued.
The judges commended the winning team on their ability to create an innovative and attractive concept within such a short time frame.
The Waterford Institute of Technology team claimed the runners-up spot and receive a summer placement in ESB.
Hosted by ESB, this competition is only open to third level colleges with all teams comprising three engineering and one finance student. ESB is sponsoring the team’s participation in the international competition in Montreal in 2017 with the winning team also offered placements in the company.
