Engineering salaries in Ireland for 2018
The engineering industry in Ireland continues to see significant growth, with over 79% of organisations stating that their business will grow in 2018 and the same number planning on hiring engineering professionals in the year ahead.
In past years engineering graduates had difficulty securing their first professional role after completing their qualification in their chosen discipline. This has been turned on its head in recent years with businesses targeting newly-qualified engineers with comprehensive graduate programmes. A number of these companies are engaging with engineering students at an early stage in their career. Many have put internships in place across the four years of the degree programme in addition to offering paid summer work. These organisations are reaping the reward of this initiative with a substantial number of interns slotting seamlessly into full-time roles once they graduate.
