Description

This recording begins as Larry Poland recalls the appointment of Louis O’Halloran, a UCC graduate and Post Office engineer who later worked for IBM. In 1969 full-time two-year certificate courses covering the subjects of electronic, telecommunications and computer engineering were established at the Crawford, initially with City and Guilds recognition, with particular attention to the new subject of computer engineering. Soon the National Council for Educational Awards (NCEA) was established and the courses were redesigned and validated. In 1974 the diploma course in Electronic Engineering was established and 1979 saw the four-year honours degree course established.
