Student Profile

Dhanashree Gokhale

"After completing my BE in electronic engineering, I was keen to pursue a master’s degree in biomedical engineering. I chose UCD due to the quality of research done in this field and the structure of the ME Biomedical engineering programme. While allowing students to pick from a wide range of subjects from the schools of engineering, science and medicine the course also focuses on improving professional skills with the inclusion of the work experience internship, which was truly beneficial. UCD’s emphasis on research plays a key role in ensuring that students are exposed to a high standard of learning and have experienced staff to guide them throughout the course and with options thereafter. Since completing my course, I have been working with the Health Products Regulatory Authority of Ireland as a scientific officer in the medical devices department. While the coursework at UCD including the projects undertaken as part of the ME programme contribute towards my role as a scientific officer, the network of UCD alumni and staff continue to provide support and guidance wherever and whenever needed."
