Talking in college about being a student and running a business

I was delighted to have had the chance to speak at the National University of Ireland, Galway open day on Saturday 7th October. The talk was titled “Become an Engineer and shape the world we live in” and I based my talk around my experience of choosing Engineering as my degree, the opportunities available to me from the degree, as well as managing a business alongside college.

I gave the talk alongside 3 other speakers, from the Civil, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering departments. I was speaking for the Mechanical Engineering department, and it was good to be able to share with Leaving Cert students the transition from secondary school to college, and to show that if you do a degree in Engineering, you can work in Finance, IT, Consulting and many other careers not directly associated with Engineering.
