The engineering students of DkIT got a welcome treat on Tuesday 15th November as one of the local leading employers in the renewable energy sector came to give the students a talk. Organised and run by Student Enterprise @ DkIT, it was not an event to be missed as students and staff alike filled the engineering theatre. Manufacturing manager Niall O'Callaghan presented the up and coming technology of tidal energy systems which are being developed in Greenore and which have been deployed off Canada and France. Although the company has not yet commercialised their products, they have received investments of over €80 million from different corporate and private investors, which signifies the belief in this new sector. The event finished up with a lengthy Q&A session as students left with renewed hope of potential employment possibilities. DkIT Student Enterprise would  like to thank everybody who attended OpenHydros talk. We look forward to your continued support throughout the year.
