I graduated from LIT with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Environmental and Natural Resource Management (now Environmental and Geographical Sciences) & I am currently working as an Environmental Scientist for ECOS Environmental Consultants in Limerick. In the course of my job with ECOS, I have gained experience across many different business sectors and a broad range of projects relating to water, waste, waste-water including resource management, circular economy, licensing and permits and environmental monitoring and management.
My course at LIT equipped me with a broad range of skills not only from an environmental perspective but also from a business and project management standpoint. I have also carried out independent research on species of primary concern in the Slieve Bloom Mountains. As part of this research, I applied skills such as ecology and earth science, GIS, research techniques and field studies all of which I developed in my time studying at LIT.
The modules covered on the course have well prepared me for a career in the environmental sector. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the environmental sector.
