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.
We asked Tracey Roche from Analog Devices to give some advice for people considering this job:
3 main things:
1. Be organised.
2. Try to keep a positive attitude.
3. Persevere. Working in a Design Evaluation role or indeed any electronic engineering role, requires problem-solving skills and half the battle with this is having a positive attitude. If you have a negative/pessimistic attitude, the battle to find a solution is lost before you even start. In debugging an issue, start with the basics and work from there. Like peeling an onion, gradually peel off the outter layers to reveal the inner core of the onion...as you work, you get more clues and develop a better understanding of the product/issue you are working on.

Postgraduate courses allow learners to develop their knowledge of a subject to the maximum levels possible, or develop specific skills and expertise in addition to their undergraduate area of study.
Masters degrees and post-graduate diplomas are awarded at Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications. Master degrees in Ireland typically last one (taught courses) or two (research based) years, while Postgraduate diplomas are typically one year.
Doctoral and higher doctorate awards are awarded at Level 10 on the NFQ, and may last several years.
Postgraduate awards are much sought after in the workplace, as candidates have typically developed advanced analytical and systems skills in their chosen career area. Occupations often involve coordinating, training, supervising, or managing the activities of others to accomplish goals. Examples include librarians, lawyers, many medical specialists, wildlife biologists, school psychologists, treasurers, and most scientists.
