Some Fantastic Projects Displayed at DCU’s 2014 Faculty of Engineering and Computing Final Year Expo

FYP-Expo2014-1This year saw the largest turnout ever of both final year students and employers  to  the Faculty of Engineering and Computing Expo.

The Future is Bright for our 2013 Computing and Engineering Students

Final Year Project Expo 2013The Final Year Computing and Engineering students here in DCU staged another successful Expo this year to showcase their final year projects.   A combined effort of over 100 projects between the three schools was on display.  Over 50 companies and 200 people came to see ideas and inventions ranging from internet-controlled security robots to an autopilot demonstration rig and hospital spillage sensing devices.  A multitude of apps were also on display including MyBalCheck which consolidates users’ banking, utilities and mobile accounts into a single app; a digital guitar tuner; landlord management systems; and an app which allows restaurants to donate good quality waste food to charities. 

Speaking at the event, Professor Barry McMullin, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering & Computing said, “Today’s Expo showcases the depth and breadth of the talents of our students here in DCU Faculty of Engineering & Computing.  With the ICT and Smart Manufacturing industries growing and changing at a rapid pace, especially in this country, we believe that the range of Final Year Projects on display today reflect and respond to this shifting landscape.  Indeed, many of the projects displayed here today represent products with real commercial potential.

Many of those employers who attended were keen to chat to students, arrange interviews, and eager to snap up some of the brightest and best students DCU has to offer from the School of Computing, Electronic Engineering and Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering.  There was a fantastic atmosphere roaming through the labs and lots of comments on the high standard of work and variety of projects on display.  For the third year running, SAP sponsored the event and companies such as IBM, Fidelity and Davy, sponsored top prizes for impressive and most innovative projects.  

This Expo has been running for over 25 years and growing each year.  Its growth and success is a direct result of the hard work and quality of projects coming from the students in the Faculty.  You can view the projects on display  at the following link  http://www.computing.dcu.ie/sites/default/files/documents/fyp/booklet2013.pdf
