On Tuesday February 25th, Intel Ireland awarded the latest recipients of a scholarship programme for Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) students. Taking place in Kevin Street, the event also saw TU Dublin graduate Eamonn Sinnott, Vice President, Manufacturing and Operations, and General Manager of Intel Ireland, return to his alma mater to talk about his memorable journey from Kevin Street to leading Intel in Ireland.
For over a century, Kevin Street has been synonymous with scientific and technological education in Ireland. Generations of graduates have gone on to become leaders and innovators in high-tech sectors in Ireland and across the globe, carrying with them memories of Kevin Street. One of the most successful graduates of his generation is Eamonn Sinnott who the University invited back to Kevin Street for one last time as it prepares to move 10,000 students to its flagship campus in Grangegorman.
In conversation with Dave Kilmartin, Head of the Career Development Centre at TU Dublin, Eamonn shared his memories of student life in Kevin Street, lessons he has learned along the way and his thoughts about the skills and competencies that students need to forge a successful career in this technological era.
Concluding the event, the Intel Ireland Scholarship recipients were presented with their awards. The Scholarships were established as part of a far-reaching programme of collaboration in future talent development, research and engagement announced by Intel and the University in February 2019. It provides recipients with €3,000 to support their academic studies and a mentor from Intel Ireland to help them build a direct relationship to the world of work.
