• Our student placement programme

    Roughan & O'Donovan gives students the opportunity to work alongside the designers of some of Ireland's most complex infrastructural projects.

    By joining our project teams, you'll put the knowledge you've gained in college to work, and learn what life in a leading engineering consultancy is really like.


    How the programme is designed

    The programme is designed to be flexible, so our placements vary in duration from 2 weeks up to 1 year.

    First to final year students may apply to work in any of the following areas:

    • Bridges
    • Buildings
    • Geotechnical
    • Site
    • Transportation and traffic
    • Water services


    What makes our programme different

    At Roughan & O’Donovan, you won’t be asked to sit quietly in front of a PC in a far corner of the office.  You’ll join teams working on live projects.

    We’ll encourage you to make the most of your time with us, and we'll make sure you enjoy the experience to the full.
