Oatlands College, Dublin
Why you chose to study in DCU?
I chose DCU because of the course structure in the engineering program, especially the third year internship program because it is a great way to interact with the industry and getting a broader insight into the life of an engineer.
One unique part about your course that you like
The opportunities I have been given to interact with industry professionals, thanks to the teaching staff. As a Mechatronic engineering student, you get the best of mechanical and electronic engineering and being able to interact with industry professionals helps you to decide where you would like to be after finishing your degree.
Best thing about DCU experience so far
The opportunities to be involved in a wide spectrum of activities, be it hackathons or student competition or the Students Union. There is a lot on offer and if there is something that you cannot find, there is tons of support to start your own thing as well.
Advice you would give to your younger self thinking of what to do/ where to go
Keep an open mind. Don’t let one choice decide your future. There are multiple routes to a destination.
Plans after DCU
I would love to go abroad, to Japan as they are doing a lot of work in the clean energy sector, maybe via New Zealand to pursue a masters.
