UL designers to showcase work


wordpress-logoSTUDENTS from five separate design programmes in UL will showcase their work in the former Franciscan Church in Limerick city centre following last year’s successful inaugural event.

The exhibition, entitled [email protected], will be launched on Tuesday May 28 at 7pm and will run until Saturday June 1.

The event brings together the diverse skills of the UL students of architecture, civil engineering, product design, mechanical and aeronautical engineering, architectural and engineering technology and digital and interactive media through drawings, models, photographs, prototypes, films and sketchbooks.

It also highlights the benefits of STEAM thinking, where science, technology, engineering and mathematics are improved by art and design.

The work of five architecture design students, whose projects focused on Limerick City, will be presented to Limerick citizens for the first time in an extensive range of models and drawings.

There will also be a full scale footbridge in place, designed and built by first year civil engineering students, which spanned across a large pond on the UL campus.

Innovative inventions from product design students will be included, as will a small cinema space for viewing digital and interactive media work and film.

Suspended aeroplanes, created by aeronautical engineering students, will be also be on show.
