More than 70 Students benefit from 2017 Leaders@LIT Student Scholarship Programme

-Special Guest Speaker, Former Munster and Irish International Rugby Player, Paul O’Connell and the 34 donors who contributed €750,000 to the scholarship fund, show their support at a special awards ceremony at LIT.

More than 70 recipients of the 2017 Leaders@LIT Student Scholarship Programme, along with the 34 donors who have contributed €750,000 to the scholarship fund to date, were recognised at a special ceremony in Limerick Institute of Technology, December 4, 2017.

The LIT student scholarship aims to alleviate the strain of financial difficulties experienced by targeted student cohorts, and so allow the recipients to concentrate fully on their education and finish their course of study.

Had the pleasure of filming and editing the promotional video for this event which can be watch on the link below:

New to the CAO for 2018 is the Creative Broadcast & Film Production Level 8 programme based in the Moylish Campus of LIT.

This practical based programme is over four years and includes modules across a range of departments of Broadcast and Film Production.

With the arrival of Troy Studios and the ‘Nightflyers’ series, which is currently under production, Limerick is quickly becoming the new destination for high end programming and film. (See Link: Limerick’s Troy Studios prepares for full flight as Nightflyers takes off – Photo 1 of 4 – Limerick )

More information on the level 8 programme can be got from the flyer below or checking out the website: http://www.lit.ie/Courses/LC371/default.aspx 

 

With 11 categories and over 33 companies shortlisted, this years Limerick Chamber Business Awards are more popular than ever with Limerick companies both large and small.

Returning again this year I have had the honor of filming short interviews with each of the nominees and then putting together both the nomination VTs for November 9th at the Greenhills hotel and the winning VTs for the awards night itself on November 17th at the Strand Hotel.

Best of luck to the nominees on Friday 17th Nov.

There is a fund raising campaign for former graduate and entrepreneur Robert Laffan who has suffered a serious brain injury during a conference he was attending in the United States.

His wife Emily is with him by his side in Minneapolis … She maybe out there up to a month..

So right now many of their friends are coming together to raise funds to help ease some of this unforeseen financial burden that will arise

If there is any way you can help get the following out there, that would be great….

And particularity the gofunfme to help their family through this

A little reminder of who Rob Laffan is…
Rob Laffan is a past student of Industrial Automation and Robotics in the Dept of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Through the guidance of Ian Foley (FYP project) he came up with a touch screen device (using HMI) that would help those with Autism (non verbal) to communicate their needs and feelings by touching pictures on a screen which in turn sends a text message to the carers phone

Roberts daughter Sadie has Autism…

With this he went on to win several major innovation/entrepreneur awards during his final year…

His idea called “Tippy Talk” caught the eye of several investors which was then developed into an “App”

Its use is now worldwide in homes and has recently entering the schools for Autism in America.
