33 students from the BEng in Manufacturing Engineering & BSc (hons) in Manufacturing Engineering visited the Boston Scientific plant in Clonmel last week. Tim Rae, the plant's Quality Manager, and John Dempsey, the Process Development Manager, explained how their world leading products are designed, manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards. Our students were given the opportunity, then, to visit the clean room in small groups to observe where the defibrillators and pacemakers were being manufactured
Mary Doyle Kent the Course Leader of the BEng in Manufacturing Engineering said “In my opinion this trip was successful on many levels. It illustrated that we are integrating our International students very well into all aspects of our courses. The fact that several of the visiting students are female shows that Manufacturing Engineering is an exciting and rewarding career choice for females, and finally the staff in Boston Scientific treated us exceptionally well - even though they were eaten out of house and home by our students!"
