I studied Engineering Technology at OFI Dundalk. I chose it as it was a way of seeing which type of engineering I wanted to do in the future. The thing I found most enjoyable was the workshop classes. Doing a PLC course has really helped me, it was a path to see if I wanted to do mechanical or aviation studies.
