Typetec has secured a €3 million contract with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) to provide students with Apple MacBook Air notebooks and support services.
RCSI was the first college in Ireland to pioneer a one-to-one laptop programme in 1993. Working in partnership with Typetec, RCSI has now rolled out the enhanced service to the whole student body based in RCSI’s new flagship building at York Street in Dublin city centre.
“Using best-in-class technology is part of the student experience at RCSI. Through their learning journey, our students are encouraged to develop innovation and leadership skills, and technology plays an important role in that,” said RCSI chief technology officer Justin Ralph.
“With Typetec we know we have a partner that continually delivers on quality of service, and has the skills and experience to deliver technology that supports and enhances our students’ learning.”
Typetec CEO Paul Dooley said: “We greatly admire the progressive culture and innovation that RCSI has developed over the last 25 years. Working with an institution that has such a vision for technology in education is truly inspiring. We are delighted as always to once again partner with them on this initiative and look forward to supporting them in developing the provision of educational training and lifelong learning through powerful ICT strategies.”
