What past graduates have to say:
John Meehan
"Holding a first-class honours degree in Chemical Engineering from my home country, Nigeria, I have always been passionate about advancing my knowledge internationally in the field of Chemical Engineering. The Education in Ireland fair organised in Nigeria opened my mind to the numerous opportunities that earning a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from UCD brings. Graduating with an honours degree in MEngSc from UCD, which is the top university in Ireland and is ranked within the top 1% of higher education institutions world wide has contributed to my receiving job offers from Ireland and Australia. The teaching, learning ideology and philosophy at UCD contributed to my development and design of chemical processes in industry at international levels. I am very grateful to the advancement in my career that UCD has provided me. I believe that the additional knowledge and skills acquired from UCD has contributed to my performance in undertaking cutting-edge design and research projects and will continue to help me earn leading roles in the industry."
