2019 Graduate - Currently studying at DIT, General Engineering

The year in DFEi has given me a “head start” with my degree course.  I learned a lot of skills in DFEi, specially with electronics. While doing the course I actually set up my own server at home so I was putting my knowledge in to practice. I am particularly  interested in robotics and automation engineering and I might specialise in this area. Aside from the course work there is a very welcoming athmosphere in DFEi. I would recommend this course.
