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.

The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Automation Engineering involves the design, development and implementation of sensor and robotic systems for applications across a wide range of technological sectors. Modern engineering systems employ a broad spectrum of technologies, which when integrated provide for improved efficiency, quality and reliability.

The combination of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Computer Technology, namely, Mechatronics, is core to this endeavour. This integrated approach is becoming increasingly important in modern technological environments. This programme is delivered from a multi-disiplinary perspective, thus equipping graduates for a diverse range of modern technological roles.


Students will develop a range of skills in the design and implementation of automation solutions; from 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD, Solid-Modelling), sensor and instrumentation selection, programming of robotics to the management of the resulting systems. The study programme is designed to provide the student with the skills necessary to perform as a technologist in a range of industries.

The programme appropriately combines academic class-work and practical “hands-on” work in DIT laboratories and workshops. Work placement in a suitable industrial environment is undertaken in Semester 2 of Year 2.

Students who reach the appropriate level in final examinations and meet certain subject prerequisites may progress to Level 8 Honours Degree programmes (typically enter at Year 3 of the 4 year programmes at DIT or elsewhere). Those who graduate with this Bachelor of Engineering Technology Degree (B.Eng.Tech) degree qualify for the Associateship membership (AMIEI) of EI.
