At the exhibition last Friday, young people showcased their engineering projects to the wider community. The event also had a host of special guests including Michael Loftus, Head of Faculty of Engineering and Science, CIT, Margaret Murphy O'Mahony TD, Tara Tibbs, Engineering Business Leader, Eli Lilly, Stephanie Sheehan, VP Operations, Poppulo, and Seán Campbell, CEO, Foróige.
