A new bachelor’s degree in Automation and Robotics has been announced at GMIT as part of a new collaboration between the college and technology company Thermo King.

The new engineering degree will build STEM skills in the local community and it will include a special robotics automation training centre at Thermo King’s manufacturing plant in Galway.

Minister of State and Galway TD Hildegarde Naughton said that yesterday’s announcement very clearly demonstrates the pool of talent and skill that is available across Galway and the West.

“This is a very exciting move which I am sure will bolster Galway’s place on the world map for engineering and automation,” she said.

“I would like to congratulate everyone involved in bringing this project to its fruition, particularly the team at Thermo King and the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology.”
