February Thrive Updates


Tandem’s Thrive committee arranged a team challenge with WeEscape, Cork. Teams were given sixty minutes to solve puzzles, clues, use props, avoid red herrings and solve their way out of a room.

A great evening of team work, critical thinking, creativity and fun. Happy to report that everyone made it out!

Thrive Events in January

Tandem held two social events in January to kickstart 2024 on a positive note. To celebrate diversity in Tandem, the Thrive committee organised a shared lunch and invited people to bring Irish & international foods to share. This was a big hit and will become a regular event in Tandem.

A group then headed to the Ice-Skating rink at Fota Island. We had some beginners and some more experienced skaters, but everyone in the group had fun.
Tandem’s Thrive committee is looking forward to many more social events this year.

STEPS Engineers Ireland Young Engineers Award

Tandems Advance Graduates were delighted to take part in this year’s STEPS Young Engineers Award.

This competition encourages 3rd and 4th class pupils to explore the world of engineering by developing an engineering project that would help improve their local community.

Tandems engineers visited schools nationwide, in person and virtually, and the pupils had the opportunity to showcase their engineering projects. Our engineers spoke to the class about the reasons they chose a career in engineering, insight into their day-to-day roles as well as the role engineering plays in the environment around us.

“The school visit was fantastic. They were a very engaging class, full of questions and stories!”

“We were very impressed with all the class projects and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

MTU Work Placement Day

The Munster Technological University’s Electrical and Electronic Engineering Faculty had their inaugural Work Placement Day in September 2023. The day aims to showcase work placements by having students present a poster of their experience. Tandem was delighted to be one of six companies in attendance.

Students Olivia Hay and Alan O’Regan represented Tandem at the event, discussing their experience with all students from 1st to 4th year.

Alan and Olivia have been a great addition to Tandem’s electrical engineering team during their placements and wonderful ambassadors for Tandem in their faculty.

The poster will remain on display in the department hallway for all students to reference, hopefully it will provide some inspiration to other students!
