DkIT Science Students Site Visit to WuXi Biologics

28 May 2024

Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) 3rd year Science students were absolutely delighted to recently visit WuXi Biologics state of the art facility. DkIT prides itself on its close ties with Industry and a visit of this nature for its students is a tremendously valuable learning experience.

Only recently DkIT’s School of Health and Science launched a new bursary programme in conjunction with WuXi Biologic’s WiSTEM initiative which saw two female 3rd year science students at DkIT being awarded €1,500 financial support as they progress through their degree.

DkIT is the leading higher education provider in the region and are completely committed to STEM, one of the fastest growing industry sectors both locally and nationally. DkIT’s recent opening of the New Jocelyn Bell Burnell Building cemented the Institutes investment to increase capacity on Life Science, Health Science and Agri-Food programmes, helping DkIT to meet the growing demand from employers in the region for high-quality graduates in these specialised areas.  

Dr Gillian Lambe, Head of Department of Life & Health Sciences, DkIT said

“We’d like to thank WuXi Biologics for the warm welcome the students received in their facility. Site visits like this are a superb way for students to see science in action within industry. On the day the team in WuXi Biologics facilitated an extremely informative questions and answers session for our students. The students learned so much from the talent acquisition team and also people working in different sections of WuXi Biologics and WuXi Vaccines. The employees generously shared their advice on pathways into the BioPharma industry in WuXi Biologics. It was also great to see so many DkIT graduates working in situ in WuXi Biologics and utilising their learnings from DkIT in the real world”.
