Software Engineer

When did I study at UL?

I studied the BE/ME in Electronic and Computer Engineering from 2013-2017.

Where do I work now?

I’m currently working as a Software Engineer for Jaguar Land Rover, based in Shannon, Co. Clare.

What does a typical day look like for me?

A typical day starts with catching up on emails, and a quick daily team meeting to chat about our current tasks. The rest of the day would normally be spent at my desk writing code. This is different every day as the problems which need to be solved, vary from task to task. Sometimes testing prototype code can be completed at my desk, and sometimes I need to test it in a lab environment or in a vehicle. Software might need to be tested and reworked multiple times before it can be considered production ready.

What's my favorite UL memory?

One of my favourite things about studying at UL was the campus. The facilities are excellent; from the labs and workshops, to the different places to eat and drink on campus.

Why should you consider studying Electronic and Computer Engineering at UL?

The technology and engineering industry is constantly changing and growing, making it a very exiting area to work in. This course gave me the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in software engineering. My course also included cooperative placement for a semester, which provided fantastic industry experience, and was a huge advantage when applying for jobs after college.
