On Thursday, June 2nd, ISE hosted “The International Advisory Board (IAB)’ at the Keating room of Plassey House, following a fantastic lunch in the East room restaurant.
The IAB members discussed many topics to ensure ISE is prepared to give the very best to our first cohort of students arriving at the beginning of September. Special thanks to John Collison, President of Stripe, for chairing the meeting, via zoom and to Nigel Healy, Provost, at the University of Limerick for attending.
On Tuesday, June 7th, ISE hosted “ISE: Inspiration Projects and Portfolio Clinic”.
Over 20 students and parents from around the country travelled to the ‘Nexus Innovation Centre‘ at the University of Limerick for our Immersive Software Engineering Inspires Workshop. This workshop was aimed at assisting 4th, 5th & 6th years who are interested in Software Engineering and who are potentially going to submit an ISE Portfolio.
Students met with the ISE team and discussed their future portfolio projects and ideas! Students and teachers alike found the day very inspiring and a lot of fun.
During the workshop 6th year student Caitlin Earle of St. Flannan’s College, Ennis, was presented with a new PlayStation5 for her winning entry into our Instagram competition.
