Objectives of the EGA
UCD Engineering Graduates Association (EGA) was established in 1980, with objectives including the provision of a networking forum for graduates, promoting their interest and fostering links between industry and UCD through placements and research.
UCD EGA has evolved and developed over the intervening years as a result of events organised to fulfil these objectives. Events have included the Annual Lunch/Dinner, Annual Lecture, Annual Golf Outing and the EGA Gold Medal Ceremony, held every year to mark the achievements of outstanding graduating students across the engineering disiplines.
