From Astronauts to Zoologists – A UCC STEM degree leads to some of the most exciting and rewarding careers on the planet


Our understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is of fundamental importance to the way in which humankind, and this planet we call home, will develop during the 21st century and beyond.


Exciting careers await female graduates of UCC’s College of Science, Engineering and Food Science. This is the second of a series of panel discussions the College is hosting, where female scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians will talk about their fulfilling careers and the way in which they have had a significant impact in areas such as health and the environment.




  • Professor Sarah Culloty, Head of College, Science, Engineering and Food Science, UCC
  • Dr Kellie Dean, College Lecturer & Researcher, School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, UCC
  • Dr Denise Gabuzda, College Lecturer & Researcher, Department of Physics, UCC
  • Dr Michele Conroy, Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Analog Devices Research Fellow at the University of Limerick
  • Ali-Rose Sisk, CEO of SafeCare Nursing Software, PhD student at the Faculty of Brain Science, University College London


Julia Sheehan, who is Chair of the WiSTEM Society in UCC, will be moderating the panel.


This is a great opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students to learn more about career options after college.


Consider what you are passionate about. A career in STEM is incredibly adaptable – you have myriad of directions to go in post-graduation. From cyber security to climate change, from photonics to astrophysics, sustainability to waste minimisation - STEM is the place to be right now”. Professor Sarah Culloty, Head of College.
