New course to examine contribution of engineers to culture and heritage

Engineers Ireland West Region (representing engineers in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon ) will host an exciting course in GMIT during February and March 2017 which will explore the contribution of the engineering profession to the development and protection of our culture and our heritage, with a particular focus on local heritage.

This annual evening course covers a different topic each year, and this year’s topic has been chosen to celebrate Galway City’s selection as European Capital of Culture 2020.

An excellent line-up of speakers has been put together from Ireland and abroad, covering areas such as archaeology, conservation, industrial heritage, the arts and urban redevelopment.

The course is being run as part of Engineers Ireland West Region’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD ) programme of events, and attendance is open to all, not just engineers.

It is being held over five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 8pm in Room 903 in GMIT, Dublin Road, Galway, starting on Tuesday February 7 and concluding on Tuesday March 7.
