Students from six different design programmes in the University of Limerick, including Brendan Walsh from Miltown Malbay and Noelle Tierney from Ennis, are currently showcasing their work for the third year running in the former Franciscan Church in Henry Street in Limerick City Centre.
This extensive exhibition was launched by UL President Don Barry and UL Dean of The Faculty of Science & Engineering Prof. Edmund Magner on Tuesday 27th May at 7pm. The exhibition is now open to the public from 10am to 5pm daily including weekends and will run until Friday 6th June 2014.
The Design@UL annual exhibition is a joint showcase of the very diverse design skills of UL future graduates.
Students of Architecture, Product Design & Technology, Digital Media Design, Interactive Media, Civil Engineering and Architectural & Engineering Technology are displaying their drawings, models, projections, photographs, prototypes, applications, texts, films and sketchbooks.
“This is STEAM thinking in action, where Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are augmented, and improved by Art and Design thinking (STEAM).
The University of Limerick is a natural home for STEAM thinking, but more importantly, for STEAM doing!” said Merritt Bucholz, Professor at the School of Architecture University of Limerick (SAUL)
