Tonight, the UCD Alumni Awards are being held, the awards celebrate and honor the outstanding achievements of alumni, who uphold values that the UCD holds dear – integrity, excellence, collegiality, engagement, creativity and diversity.

We are excited to let you know that Dr Byrne, Engineering Director for Ei Electronics has been nominated for the science category.

Dr Byrne is a physicist who used theoretical knowledge from his degree to invent a new technology which he has turned into a global business. Dr Byrne graduated with a BSc in Physics and went on to complete a PhD in Atmospheric and Aerosol Physics in 1976.

From his involvement in the development of the basic ionisation smoke alarm, in 1988 he and his colleagues led a management buyout, following which Ei Electronics was established in Shannon which now employs over 700 people. Ei Electronics is the leader in residential fire detection products, and the originator of innovative products including smoke detectors, carbon monoxide sensors, unique electronic circuits, RF technology and sounders. It holds over 25 patents in these technologies.

We would like to congratulate Mike and wish him all the best for this evening, we hope he has a fantastic night!
