In 2016, Dublin City University together with Accenture and the 30% Club launched the pilot internship programme aimed at highlighting the careers available to pre-service STEM teachers as well as giving them hands-on experience of STEM careers in a corporate environment. The programme is led by STEM Education academics Associate Professor Eilish McLoughlin and Professor Deirdre Butler. Associate Professor Majella Dempsey is the MU partner lead. Through the support of strategic partners, 30% Club, Connecting Women in Technology (CWIT) group and Science Foundation Ireland, the programme has been expanded to include host organisations across a range of industrial sectors including technology, pharma, medical devices, utilities, financial and professional services.
