DkIT signs Cargotec partnership

Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with Co. Louth manufacturer of Moffett Truck Mounted Fork Lifts, Cargotec Engineering Ireland, part of HIAB.
The MOU provides a strategic framework for greater collaboration between both organisations in the areas of workforce training, graduate talent pathway development, joint sponsorship initiatives and research & innovation projects.
Over the course of three years, both parties have agreed to explore bespoke training opportunities for Cargotec staff in areas such as operations development, data analytics and supply chain management. They will also investigate the feasibility of developing an accredited part-time management training programme for Cargotec’s operations leaders aimed at assisting the company to retain and nurture talent.
The MOU also outlines an intention to create more defined career pathway opportunities for DkIT graduates with Cargotec Engineering. The agreement sets out formal mechanisms for Cargotec to engage with future graduates via student projects, on-campus visits and the possible introduction of a graduate programme for DkIT graduates.
Both organisations have committed to scoping out opportunities for increased research collaboration. Areas of mutual interest for applied research projects include the internet of things, electrical vehicle systems, and Computational Fluid Dynamics, among others.
