2019 Graduate. Now working in Aecom Engineering

Dun Laoghaire Further Education Institute (DFEI) played such an essential part in my new career strategy because it was the connection between myself and my current job. When I read about the course at (DFEI), I thought it was exactly what I was looking for. I liked the combination of different subjects in the same course. The Architectural Technology and Design course introduced me to the building construction area, creative design, AutoCAD, communications skills and much more. I had the support from all teachers to keep me going with my learning and I became confident to continue studying as we were approaching the end of the year.

One of the most critical moments during the course was the work experience when I joined AECOM for two weeks. This allowed me to gain first-hand knowledge how to apply my course content in real life. Again, without the course I would not have the same opportunity as I had there. When I completed the course I was invited to come back to AECOM for a summer internship. Nine months later, I am still working here but now as an Apprentice CAD Technician.

My career path has changed so fast, and I am excited about that. Every assignment and exam at (DFEI) was worth it! I’m even thinking of applying for a third level programme in Civil Engineering.

I encourage anyone interested in a career in the field of Building Construction, Architecture or Design to consider applying for one of the courses at (DFEI). You’re the only one that can make the difference, but the college has the tools to help you to get there.

Don’t underestimate the benefits of doing a PLC. My course was the best year of education I could have asked for. I’ve learned so much about myself and my field of interest, which I will always value from my time at DFEi. I am now studying Communications in DCU. There are many routes to get in to the course that is right for you. PLC courses are a great way to help you find your path.
