Great place to work

The Best Bits

UCC provides a great support with lots of training and available industry courses. This help you to develop your soft skills. It is also a great place to build a solid scientific knowledge and analytical skills.

Things to improve

Technicians culture, they are always away for coffee and cigarette when people really need help (especially in food chemistry). They are really anti international people.
