‘Thesis in Three’ Research Event06 January 2023
The School of Informatics & Creative Arts in Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) recently held an exceptionally informative event which highlighted and promoted the diverse range of research that is currently been undertaken in the school. The event was called ‘Thesis in Three' Research. The concept of this event was that each academic had to present their thesis in no more than three minutes with no more than three slides to a general audience. It was a great way for researchers to hone their 'elevator pitch' explanation of their research and the whole event gave a great overview of the research that is currently being performed across the School of Informatics & Creative Arts.
The event was opened by Prof. Fergal McCaffery, Head of School of Informatics and Creative Arts. Prof. McCaffery spoke about the importance of research for the Institute and how it is central to assist DkIT in its journey towards university status whilst increasing the Institutes profile nationally and internationally. DkIT already has a strong reputation for its applied research and has developed impressive access to companies and research in the community.
