Polish ErasmusPlus Students at CIT part of prize-winning team
Posted: 30 May, 2017
Two incoming Polish Erasmus+ students at Cork Institute of Technology will go home with more than pleasant memories of Leeside. Monica Kozakiewicz and Jacek Jankowski, both of Wroclaw UST, were part of a CIT student electronics team who were chosen by multinational company – National Instruments (NI) – a global leader in test, measurement, and control solutions – as one their Top 10 Projects worldwide. The award is part of NI’s annual Student Design Showcase where undergraduate engineers are invited to show how they’ve used NI technology to empower their projects.
Other winners came from China, UK, Taiwan, Netherlands and the Republic of Korea.
CIT 3rd year electronic students Adam Burke and Craig Davitt were also on the team under the guidance of project supervisor Donal O’Donovan.
The task the students set themselves was to create a fully “Autonomous Robotic Tour Guide” to be used to guide future first years around the college campus inside and outside.
