Position: Facilities Management Lead Lecturer
I began my career in 1990 in Mechanical services working on construction projects in the greater Munster area, e.g. Apple Inc. Cork Airport and Debeers, culminating in 2000 as a mechanical project supervisor. I then took up a position in a large private healthcare facility in Cork whereby I started my journey in Facilities Management. I was responsible for some key aspects of strategic management and operational functions. In the last few years I continued that journey as I moved to a large University to become a significant member of the FM team adding my experience and vision to the organisation.
I have always been a keen advocate of continuous personal and professional development and business today recognises this aspect and rewards it. I have achieved multiple qualifications in areas such as; mechanical services, process and chemical engineering, electrical and gas systems, leading empowered organisations, IOSH accreditation and project management.
My vast experience in these subjects coupled with 10 years construction experience and over 20 years of facility management allow me to cultivate rapport with students and develop course work and material based on practical experience in the workplace.
Eoin’s Teaching Philosophy
I am a qualified Engineer and a proud member of Engineer’s Ireland and I take pride in my attention to precision and detail. I base my lectures and teaching style on this philosophy. I strive to prepare and manage quality coursework relevant to the student with industry focus. The coursework is based on the required learning outcomes developed to engage students and peer learning. I have previously lectured with other adult education providers and the Cork Institute of Technology where I still guest lecture on career aspects with students to help them understand and see opportunities that lay ahead through education.
