Do your homework, ask about it - there is lots of infomation out there.  You need to be person centred, social, not afraid to mix and to have an understanding of disability or at least be prepared to learn about it. 

People with an Intellectual Disability  ARE NOT SICK , but they can get sick like everyone else and sometimes I feel people outside don't fully understand this. They don't just need Gods help. They need the help of qualified people that want to understand them so that their needs are met and they have chance to enjoy their life as much as is possible.

Career Progression header image

Our honours degree programme in Electronic Engineering is accredited by the Institute of Engineers of Ireland (IEI) and is recognised internationally. Graduates of the BE (hons) degree are eligible for membership of the Institute. Honours graduates are also eligible for associate membership of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (AMIEE) in the UK and membership of the Institution of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (MIEEE) in the USA. Students can work in silicon chip manufacturing and design (e.g. Intel), communication companies and in the development of products closely combining hardware and software.

Students now have the opportunity to graduate after 5 years with an ME in Electronic Engineering (masters level). This degree will exempt holders from any further written examination on the path to qualifying as a Chartered Engineer.

Beyond electronic engineering, our graduates have the software skills to work in most software companies, and the problem solving and mathematical skills for many roles in the financial and management sectors.
