The most important skill that a person in my position can have is communication.

One needs to be able to communicate effectively with people of all levels in order to do a days work. I think that this is the most important quality, to be able to fit in well with people, everyone from the operators to the senior management, one needs to be able to read them and how best to communicate with them.

An interest in basic engineering and in the heavy machine industry.

It is important to realise that working as a mechanical engineer in Irish Cement does not generally involve sitting at your desk all day. It involves alot of hands on, on-site work so a person needs to be prepared to get their hands dirty.

Another quality that is important is to be willing to learn. Even after a number of years in college, one needs to be eager to learn the ins and outs of a new environment; how cement is made, what equipment is involved, what generally goes wrong and how it is fixed.

Everyone will help and teach you but you need to open your mind and be prepared to take it all in.

Summary... header image

In the first and second years, you will study a variety of legal modules, taken alongside students reading for our other undergraduate law programmes. Law and German students also study the constitutional and civil law of their chosen jurisdiction. Students will also be exposed to opportunities to develop their language skills and their understanding of aspects of sociology, legal systems and politics.

The German law component in this programme is designed to equip students to study and ultimately practise law through German. Instruction in these modules is through German. New entrants are not expected to be fluent; rather they will develop their language skills through the degree.

The third year is spent studying legal or related subjects abroad in a German speaking university.
