CREATELAB is an initiative of the Dublin School of Creative Arts in collaboration with the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and DIT Hothouse.  It aims to support industry through design in the development of new products and the creation of Intellectual property. With Intel’s support, CREATELAB has been able to purchase a suite of cutting-edge 3D printers, which will further underpin its extensive expertise in the areas of Product Design and Development, Ideation, User Centred Design, Design Thinking, Prototyping, 3D Printing, CAD and Design for Manufacture. In addition to supporting industry, this new equipment will be used by students from different disciplines across the Institute including those from Product Design, Engineering and Creative Arts.

Eamonn Sinnott, Vice President, and General Manager Intel Ireland Ltd, Bernie Capraro, Silicon Technology Research Manager and Third Level Education Liaison Manager and Hugh Hardiman, Director of Public Affairs, Intel Ireland visited the DIT Grangegorman campus to see the new state-of-the-art equipment onsite and to meet with staff of CREATELAB.

During their visit, they also met with second-level students who are participating in IDEA – a summer academy for innovation, design and entrepreneurship taking place on campus.  These students will be among the first to experience working with the new 3D technology in DIT.

Speaking at the event, Mr Sinnott remarked, “Educational opportunity for all within a fair society is vital to ensure that when we compete on the global stage, we are always fielding the best team possible. And that is where DIT, with their general ethos of inclusivity and who hold accessibility as fundamental to their mission; are to be commended.”

DIT President, Professor Brian Norton thanked Intel for their kind support and observed that this project was just one of many resulting from the Institute’s close working relationship with the company. “In 2017, we established a strategic partnership with Intel aimed at developing and encouraging future talent.  We were delighted to receive their assistance for our Internet of Things lab in DIT Kevin Street, and now our students will benefit significantly from the opportunity to work with this new cutting-edge equipment here in Grangegorman.”
