Kacper Kolodziejczyk, New Ross, Co Wexford says that his final year project was closely related to his current work as an instrumentation engineer
What are you currently doing?
I’m currently working for a PM group in Tallaght, Dublin. I’m an Instrumentation Engineer so I work with data sheets, evaluations and working with sensors within the project management companies. I think that what I’ve learned from my degree has helped me a lot and I can bring everything I have learned with me on my career journey and put it to use. My final year project was very closely related to my current job position so the research and work I carried out on it could not have helped more. I created a data acquisition device for different situations and carried out a lot of experiments to determine what was best compatible with it.
What stands out for you about your experience at WIT?
I think everyone that was in the course with me and the lecturers for our modules were very helpful. Our courses were so small so the lecturers knew each of us on a personal level, so we could always express our ideas and views very openly and that was a great part of my experience.
What advice would you give someone considering the course?
If you were to go into any physics course you have to have a great knowledge and skill for maths as it is a very maths heavy subject. The interest in the world and how it works it is going to be a fascinating course for you. There is a very broad spectrum of modules, so you learn a lot and cover every aspect of physics to the best extent you can. The course also focuses on technology and more precisely modern energy sources so it is very interesting if you are creative as that is a huge market at the moment.
