Leaving Cert Subjects

Shane Callanan, Electronic Engineer

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

When in I was in school I didn’t really have a definite career plan. However I did prefer the Science subjects in general over languages or Business type subjects. Along with the obligatory subjects, I continued with Physics, Chemistry and Honours Maths for my leaving certificate, not so much as a conscious career choice but because I liked them. However as it turned out these all helped me during my course, and they tied in with my career choice.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Subject choice really does matter. I took Applied Maths, Physics and Chemistry for the Leaving Cert and having not studied Biology I found that hard in first year in college.
