2013 Schools Robot competition

2013 Schools Robot Competition

Cork Electronics Industry Association 9th Annual

Schools Robot Competition

Cork Electronics Industry Association held the final of its 9th Annual Schools Robot Competition РFireBots Рin Devere Hall, UCC on Thursday, Feb. 7th 2013. The competition is for 2nd year school students and is undertaken in conjunction with University College Cork (UCC), Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), Tyndall National Institute and the support of CEIA member companies. A key aspect of the initiative is that engineers, researchers and technologists from these institutes provide mentor support for the teams and this is an important opportunity to give the students an insight into potential careers in the industry. Cork is home to many Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies who provide challenging careers for people interested in driving technological change and this competition focuses on students who will become the engineers to grow and develop these companies. Electrical & Electronic Engineering courses are offered in Cork at UCC (CAO code CK605) and CIT (CAO codesCR061/590 and CR062/580).
