Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

I would advise somebody considering this job to talk to people who are engineers already. They should try to talk to people working in different areas of engineering as even when people do the same degree they can have very different day to day jobs, from full time office based jobs to full time site based jobs.

Also it is important to remember that even if you complete an engineering degree you are not limited to a purely technical career as there are plenty of other areas you can get involved in like project management or finance.

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

DIT is a very modern institution but with a fascinating history that dates back to 1887. Now, it ranks as one of the largest and most innovative institutions of higher education in Ireland, with more than 20,000 students enrolled on full and part-time programmes, from apprenticeship to post-doctoral research.

DIT is an exciting place to be a student. We are proud of our excellent reputation in the arts and media, business and finance, engineering and the sciences, architecture and planning, social sciences and law, tourism and food. Our programmes are career focused, combining academic excellence with practice-based learning. Our aim is to ensure that our students graduate successfully, prepared to play their part in society and capable of adapting to a changing international environment.

Academic achievement is important, but the whole student experience includes every aspect of life. While DIT is a large institution, our students work together in small teams and quickly get to know one another as well as the academic and support staff. Students are encouraged to become involved in some of the many societies and sports clubs on campus, to participate fully in campus life and to be open to getting to know new people and making good friends.

We look forward to welcoming you to DIT and becoming part of our community.
