Bray student Glen Carton was selected to receive a scholarship for Technological University Dublin, last week from Intel Ireland.

Glen, a past pupil of St Kilian's Community School, was awarded the Control and Automation System Engineering Scholarship.

He was one of eight recipients in different categories.

The scholarships were established as part of a far-reaching programme of collaboration in future talent development, research and engagement announced by Intel and the University in February 2019.

It provides recipients with €3,000 to support their academic studies.

They also have access to a mentor from Intel Ireland to help them build a direct relationship to the world of work.

Eamonn Sinnott, Vice President, Manufacturing and Operations, and General Manager of Intel Ireland, Bernie Capraro, Intel Research and Higher Education Programme Manager and Professor David FitzPatrick, President of TU Dublin, presented the Intel Ireland Scholarship recipients with their awards.

The ceremony took place last Tuesday night at Kevin Street.

In conversation with Dave Kilmartin, Head of the Career Development Centre at TU Dublin, Eamonn shared his memories of student life in Kevin Street, lessons he has learned along the way and his thoughts about the skills and competencies that students need to forge a successful career in this technological era.

Concluding the event, the Intel Ireland Scholarship recipients were presented with their awards.
