United Technologies Research Centre announces today the expansion of its Irish facility, to include aerospace research in cyber-physical systems.
The addition of the Centre of Excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems for Aerospace will create 25 highly skilled roles in electronics, diagnostics and data analytics, controls, aircraft systems engineering and embedded systems.
Located in Cork, Ireland, United Technologies Research Centre Ireland Limited was founded in 2010 as the European research hub of UTRC. Currently, the research facility employs more than 40 researchers and scientists focused on advancing United Technologies Corp. capabilities in building and industrial systems through research and development of underlying technical fields.
The new addition of a Centre of Excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems for Aerospace will equip United Technologies Research Centre Ireland Limited to lead cutting-edge advancements in aircraft embedded systems.
Speaking at the official opening of the new Centre of Excellence in Cyber- Physical Systems for Aerospace, Minister for Agriculture, Food, Marine and Defence, Simon Coveney TD, said, “I am delighted to welcome this expansion by UTRC into aerospace research. The choice of Cork for this activity is a clear demonstration of Ireland’s ability to provide a highly skilled workforce for this type of activity. An exceptional level of collaboration between industry, academia, state agencies and regulatory authorities drives Ireland’s dynamic RDI sector. This is supported by a highly pro-business government policy.”
“United Technologies Research Centre Ireland has flourished in the past five years, providing ground-breaking research focused on United Technologies Corp. business units in the building and industrial sector, leveraging innovations inspired by European research trends,” said David Parekh, vice president, Research, and director, UTRC. “The opportunity to grow with the IDA’s support will benefit both UTRC and the bright minds that will soon be joining the team here in Ireland.”
