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.

3 main things:

1. Be organised.

2. Try to keep a positive attitude.

3. Persevere. Working in a Design Evaluation role or indeed any electronic engineering role, requires problem-solving skills and half the battle with this is having a positive attitude. If you have a negative/pessimistic attitude, the battle to find a solution is lost before you even start. In debugging an issue, start with the basics and work from there. Like peeling an onion, gradually peel off the outter layers to reveal the inner core of the onion...as you work, you get more clues and develop a better understanding of the product/issue you are working on.

Biotechnology involves the use of living organisms (mostly microbes) to produce useful products. It includes traditional processes like brewing, cheesemaking and modern developments such as genetic engineering which can lead to new drugs against cancer and other diseases.

At the start of your course you will be introduced to the basic sciences, mathematics and computing. As you progress you will discover more comprehensive areas of biotechnology, ranging from genetics and process engineering to immunology and gene cloning.

In third year, specialist areas are introduced.
