SETU Waterford Science careers day will take place online on Friday, 25 February 2022
The Department of Science at SETU Waterford is looking forward to the Science Careers Day, to be held online on Friday, 25 February 2022. We are particularly delighted this year to welcome renowned immunologist (and Waterford native) Prof. Katherine Fitzgerald (University of Massachusetts Medical School) as the winner of the Una McDermott Award for Contribution to Science and our keynote speaker. She will be addressing final-year students from our full portfolio of science programmes, including:
· Agricultural Science
· Food Science with Business/ Food Science and Innovation
· Molecular Biology with Biopharmaceutical Science
· Pharmaceutical Science
· Physics for Modern Technology
These students are currently engaged in the final year of an ordinary (three-year, Level 7) or honours (four-year, Level 8) degree and will be available for work in June 2022. We will also be including postgraduate students from these disciplines.
Our students are highly-skilled individuals who have been trained to meet the demands of modern industry. Although employers cannot meet students and discuss career opportunities this year due to Covid restrictions, each interested employer will receive a Careers Day Graduate Handbook containing information on approximately 300 students, including a short biography and contact details.
