Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target.

New Bioengineering careers

At just 26, Liam Sexton has already built up an impressive CV. His interest in maths, technical graphics and physics at school in Waterford prompted him to study biomedical engineering at DCU, which combined mechanical engineering with aspects such as human anatomy and medical device design.

He did a five-month work placement with Accenture during his degree and separately he developed his imaging app as a start-up business through DCU’s student accelerator, UStart.

Sexton now works with Accenture as a Technology Consulting Analyst.

“My job is to help clients find solutions that focus around technologies, and my focus on maths, engineering and biology has enabled me to break down problems and see patterns,” he says. “That really opens up lots of opportunities at a fundamental level.”
