Why the name Lugus?
Lugus was the god of crafts and trade, owner of many arts and was a symbol of continuous movement and change. This made him a very special example for the smiths. In the course of time this side of Lugus was more important and he went to trade in technology, production and sales.
The always effective spear Lugus used in battle symbolizes an effective and practical way of achieving change. Effective as in 'know how to do it' and practical 'know how it can be done': know how to apply theory in practice. Obviously, this is fully applicable to the study Industrial Engineering and thus the name TBV Lugus was born.
