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.

I would advise any college student considering a career in tax to undertake a summer internship or placement in a firm offering tax services. I found this an excellent way to understand what a job in tax would actually involve. Researching careers in tax online also shows the endless and exciting opportunities that a tax qualification can offer. I have found the more I have learned about tax, the more I understand how varied roles in tax can be.

Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Mechanical engineering education and training involves learning how to creatively apply a strong scientific, mathematical and practical basis to the design of safe, reliable, environmentally sound and cost effective systems and equipment.

Students are exposed to a wide range of laboratory and practical mechanical engineering tasks that complement the theoretical modules.

During Year 1 of the programme, students undertake a wide range of practical skills including welding, metal fabrication, machining, technical drawing, computing and experimental work. These practical lifelong learning skills are developed further in year 3 of the programme when students undertake an individual project, combining research, design, mechanical development, testing, analysis, presentation and report writing skills.

The Mechanical Engineering Department places great emphasis on independent learning and learners develop their skills in this area through project work, independent assignments and team work activities. Students are encouraged to visit Industries as part of their studies and report on their findings to their peers and lecturers.

This three-year full-time programme prepares learners for the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical Engineering) degree award. At the start of the third year, learners are offered a choice; Process Plant Technology or Manufacturing Technology.

Those who have successfully completed the programme satisfy the academic requirements for Associate Membership grade of Engineers Ireland.
