Engineers Week 2015

The theme of Engineers Week 2015 is

“Engineering for Everyone”

Through specifically created workshops in association with ESERO Ireland we will highlight the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Rosetta Mission.

The success of the mission not only represents a huge scientific achievement but also a technological achievement. The underlying systems controlling the mission were built on decades of advancements in technology.

During Engineers Week 2015 at CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory we are offering workshops about the electronic systems controlling space missions such as Rosetta.
