Waterford Chamber and Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) are delighted to announce that Siemens has come on board as the lead sponsor for their Toys4.0 Engineers Conference & Expo, next Friday 22nd September at the WIT Arena.

With excellent technology and outstanding innovations, Siemens provides answers to the social, economic and environmental challenges of the 21st century and will be showcasing a range of their products at the event.

In thanking Siemens for their support, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley said: “We are looking forward to working with Siemens for this exciting event which is free for the public to attend from 2pm to 5pm. There’s going to be so much to see - from robotics to virtual reality, drones to vision systems, 3D printers to electric cars. Siemens innovations and designs will certainly enhance the event for those not just from the broad engineering domain, but for anyone who has an interest in the latest toys, gadgets and technologies.”

Speaking about the collaboration, Carl Murphy, Siemens said: “Toys4.0 Engineers is a valued initiative for Siemens as we seek to position engineering as a fascinating, relevant and dynamic career for any young person. Siemens is very pleased to support an activity that engages and encourages young people to develop their engineering expertise to solve the problems faced by today’s society”.

Toys4.0 Engineers is broken into two sessions. The morning is a fee paying Conference for engineering personnel at all levels with seven technical presentations, supported by Waterford Local Enterprise Office and Waterford Chamber Skillnet. From 2pm the event is free to the public and all are welcome to attend. This afternoon Expo will include over 50 display stands by companies and organisations (regional, national and International) across a broad range of sectors including med-tech, pharma, food, infrastructure, energy and automotive.

“We are specifically inviting secondary school students, boys and especially girls, who are curious about a career in engineering to come along in the afternoon. There is also a strong focus on jobs with a number of leading recruitment agencies and HR Managers from participating companies at the display stands. Engineers looking for a new position, particularly those who want to move or return to the South-East, are encouraged to attend and check out the opportunities” said Dr. Ken Thomas, Head of School of Engineering at WIT.

The event is backed by the IDA, Enterprise Ireland, Engineers Ireland and SIMI. WLR FM will be also be broadcasting live from the Arena on the day. Toys4.0Engineers 2017 is sure to provide plenty of fun, learning and networking opportunities for all experienced and aspiring engineers out there – don’t miss it!
