Student Profile

Rachel Perkinson

I chose to study engineering at UCD as you did not have to commit to a particular discipline straight away. This proved a wise choice as I went in believing I wanted to be a chemical engineering but quickly discovered electrical engineering was actually the discipline for me, and so I first completed a 3 year BSc degree, focusing on electrical engineering. The ME in Electrical Power Engineering at UCD is a challenging but rewarding course. I have found the course prepared me well for a career in renewable energy by making me aware of the opportunities and challenges facing the industry by mixing knowledge of the key technologies with how electricity markets and networks interact and operate. Throughout my 5 years at UCD I had the opportunity to spend a year studying in New Zealand and undertook two internships which provided invaluable experience. I am now working as an electrical engineer for SSE renewables based in Scotland and find I use many of the skills I developed at UCD on a regular basis.
