IET Power Academy scholar Matthew is undertaking a five-year electronic and electrical engineering sandwich degree course at Queen's University Belfast. He’s now returned to his studies after undertaking a year in industry at Analog Devices.
Matthew’s passion for sport is keeping him busy, but he’s still got time to work hard on his studies and his volunteer work on the IET Young Professionals committee.
Now back at university Matthew’s keeping busy with exams, mentoring, chairing the local IET Young Professionals committee and of course making time for his beloved sport!
Three jobs and four cities: Matthew’s had a crazy twelve months! Here he talks about how much he’s loved his industrial placements and how he’s preparing for his return to studies…
Matthew’s really settled into his placement at Analog Devices and is learning a lot. He’s loving life in Limerick and also enjoying the freedom of not having coursework to do during his evenings and weekends!
Matthew runs through his university experience to date, what life is like as an IET Power Academy scholar, his first placement with sponsor company Rolls-Royce and starting his year in industry.
