Openet, one of the largest privately-owned software companies in Ireland, has agreed to provide essential funding to DCU to strengthen academic resources within the School of Computing.   

A significant number of Openet staff are DCU graduates, according to Joe Hogan, a proud graduate himself of DCU's BSc in Computer Applications (1989), “Openet has long recognised the calibre of graduates produced by DCU, particularly from the School of Computing, and more recently we have been working to strengthen the relationship links between Openet and the university.  We are keen for DCU students to view Openet as an employer of choice when they graduate.” 

Some Fantastic Projects Displayed at DCU’s Faculty of Engineering and Computing Final Year Expo

FYP-Expo2014-1This year saw the largest turnout ever of both final year students and employers  to  the Faculty of Engineering and Computing Expo. Over 175 projects were on display from the School of Computing, the School of Electronic Engineering and the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.  Employers were impressed with the range of technology on show and spent much time talking to students in detail about their projects.   Many of the companies visiting hired students on the day.  SAP Ireland was the main sponsor again this year and sponsors of prizes included Fidelity Investments, FINEOS, OPENET, Ericsson and IBM.

The winner of the most innovative project was ‘Safe Return’ created by Computer Applications student Martin Jeffers, chosen by OPENET.  Joe Hogan, CTO said “our criteria focused on novel projects that had real potential to be developed with the help of OPENET.  We were impressed on how Martin delivered two very polished mobile applications, with excellent user interface design and well engineered back-end architecture”.
