The demand for highly skilled workers in Ireland’s booming biopharma and medtech industries continues to rise, with more than 2,000 jobs announced in 2018, and even more throughout this year.

And as the demand for talent grows, engineers are finding excellent career opportunities within these industries.

Across all aspects of the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, from process development to production and from machinery to validation, the process discipline of engineering provides an excellent grounding for roles in pharma and high-tech manufacturing in general.

However, as a highly regulated industry with very specific processes and protocols, gaining a recognised qualification provides the extra edge for any engineers looking to transition into this sector.

Innopharma Education’s Level 7 BSc in Process Technologies is a one year part-time degree level course aimed at anyone with an academic or professional grounding in science or engineering at Level 6 and above.

The course is ideally suited to qualified engineers who are working full-time, but seeking a part-time route to a qualification for the pharma or medtech industry.

The BSc in Process Technologies course is currently open for applications, and until July 30 the course is in receipt of Springboard funding, meaning that those who are unemployed or returning to work can enrol free of charge, and those who are employed pay only 10 per cent of the total cost of a course.

The course commences at the end of September 2019, with classes taking place online and on two Saturday’s per month, making it very easy to study while working.

Since 2010, Innopharma Education have helped thousands of people gain pharma and med-tech qualifications, and over 70 per cent of these people are now employed in all regions of Ireland’s pharma and medtech industry.

Our intake in 2018 was more than 600 students, and almost 40 per cent of these students were working in other adjacent life science or engineering industries but looking to upskill for roles in pharma.
