Axiseng are proud support Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) in their launch of a new campaign to encourage students to consider building engineering. The Institute estimating that there are now as many as ten jobs available to every graduate of the course.
The industry acknowledges the need for building engineering graduates and this has resulted in industry players and the Association of Construction Engineers of Ireland (ACEI) partnering with DIT to support a recruitment and advertising drive to highlight the extremely promising and sustainable career opportunities that exist in the area for motivated students.
Not only the building engineers are the highest paid engineers in the construction sector earning a starting salary that is typically €5,000 more than other graduates but graduates often express surprise that they are immediately put to work on high-end prestigious projects on graduation, said Ciara Ahern of DIT.
In a recent survey of almost 1,700 employers and employees by recruitment firm Hays Ireland, building engineers were in the top-three roles most sought after by employers for 2018.
It is expected that job opportunities in the low-carbon economy are also set to increase from 9 million to 20 million by 2030, which in practice could present a doubling of the workforce.
