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.
We asked Tracey Roche from Analog Devices to give some advice for people considering this job:
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.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Industrial mathematics is an interesting and relevant branch of mathematics that studies the skills most desirable in the workplace. This programme is designed to equip graduates with the skills and knowledge required to apply mathematical modelling and an analytical approach to real-world problems in industry.
Years 1 and 2 give a broad basis of subjects in applied and pure mathematics, statistics, and operational research. Introducing mathematical modelling and relevant topics in computing are also important features of years 1 and 2. Years 3 and 4 consist of advanced modules in mathematical modelling, financial mathematics, operations research and mathematical statistics. Many of these modules integrate industry relevant software.
Throughout the programme, there is an emphasis on laboratory-based work and problem-based learning via mathematical modelling, computer programming, computer applications, case studies and problem-solving, and the development of professional skills (e.g. communication skills, effective team-work strategies and project management).
The programme includes a six-month work placement during year 3 enabling students to experience a working environment and gain experience of using their analytical, problem solving and computer skills.
