Computer Forensics and Security graduate Sean Doyle found employment in Ammeon, the company where he completed his WIT work placement semester
Computer Forensics and Security graduate Sean Doyle undertook his third year work placement with Ammeon in Dublin. Following his placement at Ammeon, he was subsequently employed by the company.
“WIT helped me get the work placement in the first place. The work placement coordinator organised Ammeon to attend the college and interview students.”
Head of IT at Ammeon, Mel Sheehan said, “We would like to continue the relationship with the student because ultimately we want the student to come back to us as a graduate and hit the ground running. Ammeon are committed to working with WIT and a small number of third level institutions. This ensures there is a pipeline of students ready and available for employment in this industry.”
Head of Department of Computing and Mathematics at WIT, Padraig Kirwan, said, “All students have the opportunity to undertake a period of Work Placement for a semester in the third year of their degree, allowing them to put into practice the academic theory which they learned in the years prior to the placement semester.”
“As well as learning new knowledge and skills in industry, they gain valuable insights into working life which helps them to make informed career decisions later. It also helps to develop their CV, enhances their employability and kick starts the creation of a network of potential contacts for their future career, following graduation.”
