Do your best to find out the most you can about your specific engineering category, whether it be Electronics, Mechanical, Civil etc. Approach companies to try and get experience whilst you are at college, that way you have a running start on how to use the most up to date packages and instruments that companies have, and that then gets you the work experience when you finish college.

Video: Irish Scientists in the European Space Agency

The European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) Ireland promotes space as a theme to inspire and engage young people in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Space is fascinating to people of all ages, it is all around us and inspires us in many different ways. Space is the ultimate cross-curricular theme cutting across history, geography, science, maths, literature, religion!

ESERO Ireland makes space themed resources accessible to teachers as a tool to engage their pupils. It also works to highlight the associated applications from space technology and raises awareness of the large range of career possibilities in the space domain.

ESERO Ireland is co-funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Discover Science and Engineering (DSE).
