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 Afra Ronayne from ESB to give some advice for people considering this job:
|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.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Industrial mathematics is an interesting and relevant branch of mathematics that studies the skills most desirable in the workplace. This programme is designed to equip graduates with the skills and knowledge required to apply mathematical modelling and an analytical approach to real-world problems in industry.
Years 1 and 2 give a broad basis of subjects in applied and pure mathematics, statistics, and operational research. Introducing mathematical modelling and relevant topics in computing are also important features of years 1 and 2. Years 3 and 4 consist of advanced modules in mathematical modelling, financial mathematics, operations research and mathematical statistics. Many of these modules integrate industry relevant software.
Throughout the programme, there is an emphasis on laboratory-based work and problem-based learning via mathematical modelling, computer programming, computer applications, case studies and problem-solving, and the development of professional skills (e.g. communication skills, effective team-work strategies and project management).
The programme includes a six-month work placement during year 3 enabling students to experience a working environment and gain experience of using their analytical, problem solving and computer skills.
