IRELAND’S premier virtual, augmented and mixed reality suite at the Agritech Centre Of Excellence (ACE), hosted a virtual showcase of its facilities based on the Kerry Campus of Munster Technological University on Monday.

Funded by Enterprise Ireland, Kerry County Council, as well as industry partners Dairymaster, McHale Engineering and Abbey Machinery, the ACE Suite is a purpose-built virtual and physical collaboration space which hosts a huge array of the very latest augmented, virtual, and mixed reality platforms, enabling you to think differently whilst working in a unique technology-rich environment.

This virtual showcase is the first in a series of events taking place in April and May to launch three innovative projects across the National Centre of Agricultural Engineering which is based on the MTU Kerry Campus.

These projects have secured a budget of over €4.5million and have created 16 jobs in this highly skilled area.

Bríd McElligott, Vice President Research, Development and External Engagement at Munster Technological University congratulated Head of the School of STEM at MTU Professor Joseph Walsh, ACE Centre Manager Dr Sara Morrissey Tucker and the team on their achievements to date.

“MTU prepares students for a diverse range of careers in agriculture through the provision of a range of programme offerings. These programmes are delivered in a flexible manner with a practical focus whose content is targeted at the ever-changing needs of industry.

“It is testament to the team in the School of STEM led by Professor Walsh that MTU has added ACE to its agricultural strengths alongside a number of other exciting developments including the Reimagining Engineering Education in Ireland (REEdI), the AgriTech Cluster & the TAgMi project. Each development will be launching the services they offer over the coming months with virtual events showcasing the opportunities arising from the National Centre of Agricultural Engineering at Munster Technological University.”
