I've just got my MSc but there's no aerospace design going on in Ireland and I don't particularly want to move to USA, France, UK or elsewhere.
I wouldn't work for a military outfit so my main options would be Airbus (France of UK), Boeing (Seattle) or an automotive company (perhaps an F1 team!).
I think I'll probably go back to my previous line of work in medical device manufacturing. I did know this would be the dilema when I started the MSc but I thought I'd give it a try and decide how to proceed when I finished.
