Student insight into the ESB Inter-Colleges Challenge 

What the Students say about the 2015 ESB Inter-Colleges Challenge

'"We unanimously agreed that the challenge was an invaluable experience in a professional engineering environment and a great introduction to ESB. Although unsuccessful on the day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves." Eoin Mac Crosain, National University of Ireland, Galway.

 "It was very well organised and we all enjoyed the challenge, particularly getting to chat with other teams and people within the business." Jonathan Browning, Queen's University, Belfast.

"I think that we performed really well considering that all our team members were from an electrical background and the challenge incorporated many other different areas and fields of engineering. We got great feedback and met a lot of friendly and welcoming people. It was a great experience overall. The event was really well organised and the briefings and presentations by ESB Networks and ESB International engineers and recruitment were a brilliant addition to the day." Darren McConnen, Dublin Institute of Technology

Sinead Nolan was a member of the winning team in 2014 and she shares her experience of her paid placement with ESB.
