People working as carbon specialist come from many different backgrounds. In fact one of my former colleagues came from a genetics background, while the others were from an engineering background.

In Ireland at the moment it is quite hard to get into the carbon space so you may have to go abroad for training.

To pursue a career in engineering it is important to have a strong technical background.

Megan Byrne - Student

At this point in my time spent in college I have learnt things I didn’t think possible, discovered things about myself that I didn’t know existed and most importantly I have made friends who I know will stay with me long after I leave college. I walk into college every day smiling because I know I’m going to attend a lecture where I’m acknowledged, the lecturers know you as a person; not just a number.

When people ask me what is it about theology that I like so much I just end up smiling and saying “everything”, from the vast curriculum to the on-campus experience, There isn’t one thing about studying Theology in St Patrick’s that I dislike. So yes to sound clichéd, coming to St Patrick’s College Maynooth was the best decision I have ever made.
