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 Ejiro O'Hare Stratton from Health Service Executive to give some advice for people considering this job:

I would advise having a degree in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. Professional training in nursing is necessary in order to understand patient care and what standards are required to provide quality care in an acute hospital setting.

One would also have to understand the value of planning, implementing and evaluating work practices in order to get the best out of employees. The person coming into the job would need to be patient, able to negotiate and work under pressure, as well as work on their own initiative.

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.

Career Progression header image

Our honours degree programme in Electronic Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Engineers of Ireland (IEI) and is recognised internationally. Graduates of the BE (hons) degree are eligible for membership of the Institute. Honours graduates are also eligible for associate membership of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (AMIEE) in the UK and membership of the Institution of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (MIEEE) in the USA. Students can work in silicon chip manufacturing and design (e.g. Intel), communication companies and in the development of products closely combining hardware and software.

Students now have the opportunity to graduate after 5 years with an ME in Electronic Engineering (masters level). This degree will exempt holders from any further written examination on the path to qualifying as a Chartered Engineer.

Beyond electronic engineering, our graduates have the software skills to work in most software companies, and the problem solving and mathematical skills for many roles in the financial and management sectors.
