      I went to the National University of Ireland Galway. I also got to do a year abroad in America where I went to Purdue University for my third year in college. I loved college in Galway.

      I went to Durham University in England for my undergraduate degree. I then did a Masters at Leeds University and my PhD at the University of Manchester. It was great to travel between these places and really get different experiences in life and work at different institutions.

      I went to the University of Limerick to study Biomedical Engineering. I got to do a work placement in Abbott Clonmel, Co Tipperary during my studies. I then moved to Galway to study for my PhD in Galway Mayo Institute of Technology.

      I went to NUI Galway and did my work placement in Galway too – so many options for engineers here!

      I did my bachelor’s from “Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences” (SHUATS) and Master’s from “The LNM Institute of Information Technology”, both in India. I took both these degrees in Electronics and communication engineering. After this, for further research, I moved to Ireland, where I am currently pursuing PhD at University College Cork.

      Similar to Orla, I actually went to National University of Ireland, Galway for my Bachelors and Masters degree. I also went to Purdue University in the US during my third year of college which was an unreal experience! I am now enrolled in University Carlos III in Madrid where I am doing my PhD!
