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.
This course offers students the opportunity to study two foreign languages from the following: French, German, Irish, Chinese, Italian or Spanish, with a full range of business subjects, and to spend their third year abroad.
The programme is evenly divided between languages and business subjects. The key characteristics of this degree programme are the acquisition of professional competence in one or more languages, the acquisition of business expertise, and the third year spent abroad in a country of the student’s major language.
The programme is shared equally between the School of Languages and the School of Marketing at DIT. You will benefit from the international reputation, experience and knowledge of both schools. You will study the full range of business modules required to gain an in-depth understanding of the international business environment. You will also study the language(s) of your choice and acquire the professional competency in one or more languages necessary to work in a variety of multilingual and multicultural environments. The focus is on expansion and consolidation of your language expertise, both oral and written, in a range of professional contexts.
You will normally have obtained a minimum grade of H4 in the Leaving Certificate or equivalent in one or more of the languages offered on the programme.
In addition to continuing your study of the language or languages that you took for Leaving Certificate you will have the opportunity to study a new language from beginner’s level and you may even have the option of specialising in this new language if you do well enough.

With the increasing globalisation of world markets and the dependency of the global economy on international trade, it is essential that students develop the linguistic skills, critical thinking skills, and business skills required. Students who successfully complete the programme will be equipped to play a key role in companies and organisations seeking out new markets and/or expanding within them.
Graduates will be equally well suited to the demands of all business organisations from small and medium-sized enterprises to multinational concerns.
