Engineers Week 2022: Secondary Students visit water treatment research rig at DCU Alpha

The DCU Water Institute was delighted to welcome a group of 19 secondary school students from around Ireland. The visit was part of a range of activities organised by the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at DCU for Engineers Week and was intended to showcase the Water Engineering Innovation Hub at the DCU Alpha Campus.

Visiting students got to see and feel first-hand how technology designed and built in Ireland operates at full scale. We explored how human activity is impacting our environment and how research and innovation in waste water treatment can help mitigate this impact.

The Water Institute works closely with DCU engineering towards the realisation of UN SDGs 4, 6 and 9: Quality education, clean water and sanitation, and industry, innovation and infrastructure. Engineering underpins and connects innovation in almost every sector, a special thank you to the head of engineering in the Water Institute, Yan Delaure for organising the event in collaboration with DCU engineering.
