Students were given their challenge at this morning’s session.  Working in teams of four, they will take on the role of contractor on a real-life construction project currently underway at Dublin Airport.  They will spend six intensive hours producing their solutions to the challenge before making a 15 minute presentation to the industry panel.‌
