St. Patrick's Day: Guide

St. Patrick's Day is a big deal at MSOE, and not just because we love a good party. Because St. Patrick introduced modern building methods to Ireland (including lime mortar and arches), he is the patron saint of engineering. MSOE is just one of many engineering-focused universities in the United States to celebrate March 17 for this reason.

Here are just a few of the resources the MSOE library has on Irish history and culture and the history of engineering:
