Gearoid Rice

My name is Gearoid Rice and I am studying Mechanical Engineering.

I am currently in my second year of the 3 year level 7 programme and hope to go on and complete my 4th year in the level 8 programme.

When I was in 6th year I didn’t know what to do so I spoke to my friends, my parents and my guidance counsellor to see if I could find the options that would suit me best. I changed my mind a number of times on my CAO application between Christmas and May.

When I was deciding on what college to go to I decided I wanted to stay in Limerick and go somewhere that would give me the skills I needed for a successful career.

I simply ended up looking at what I was good at in school. I was good at problem solving and working with my hands and in the end picked Mechanical Engineering at LIT which is a bit different but definitely something I wanted to do.

What I love most about the course is the design work we do and the manufacturing of that design work.
