What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

In school I studied Tech Design and absolutely loved the subject. I also studied several engineering courses in School. From there, I went onto University of Ulster to study Design Engineering. At the time I thought it was the only option of study for me but I soon realised it wasn’t my favourite part of the engineering industry. It’s good to explore the practical subjects available in school as well as the tech subjects, they include extremely valuable knowledge that will help you to determine if the engineering life is for you in the future.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

My undergraduate degree really gave me a good insight in to what tax involved, and steered me in the direction of deciding that it was something I felt I would enjoy as a career.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I studied metal work up until Junior Cert level however when choosing my options for Leaving Cert it did not work out with other subjects so I had to drop it.

For Leaving Cert I studied all higher level subjects excluding Irish. My option subjects were Geography, Ag Science, French and Music.

I suppose Geography was the closest subject to touch on the topic of Construction. I took French on so as to keep options open on what colleges I could attend. If I had my time back I would have dropped this for construction studies or metal work as I found it hard to gain good marks in the subject.

To close out the question I don’t believe the subjects I chose had a huge influence on my career path.
