Centenary Celebration - Civil, Electrical & Electronic and Mechanical and Materials Engineering

Friday , 18 October 2019 - 19:00

UCD College of Engineering and Architecture are delighted to announce the centenary celebration of the UCD Schools of Civil, Electrical and Electronic and Mechanical and Materials Engineering. Since 1919, over 7,500 engineering graduates from these three Schools have gone on to play leading roles in industry, business, academia and society. 


You are invited to join UCD President, Professor Andrew J. Deeks, and mark this historic occasion at a black-tie gala dinner in O'Reilly Hall on Friday, 18 October at 7pm.


We want our alumni to gather together to celebrate this occasion with their classmates and friends. This promises to be a night of celebration, reconnection and nostalgia and we look forward to welcoming you back to UCD. 


UCD Mechanical Engineering graduate and award-winning DJ Tom Dunne will be our MC on the evening. Tom has worked as a broadcaster with some of the biggest radio stations in Ireland, including Newstalk, Today FM and 98FM, as well as working as a presenter on RTÉ. UCD Mechanical Engineering graduate Stephen Donnelly, Fianna Fáil TD, will be our guest speaker.


All proceeds will be used to provide support for engineering students who are struggling financially in UCD and to ensure a greater diversity of students in the Schools.


The ticket price includes pre-dinner wine reception and 3 course meal (includes wine during dinner). Each attendee will also receive a commemorative book about the past and future of UCD engineering.
