If you are looking for a career that keeps you always challenged and interested, then you really should consider a career in tax! The fact that tax is constantly changing helps keep it interesting. Every year we have a new Budget/Finance Act which introduces new tax law that we have to get on top off. So it means we are constantly learning and need to be up to date with changes as quickly as possible – that’s what our clients expect of us.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

In the first three years students will gain knowledge and develop skills in surveying, construction management, building contracts, sustainable building technology, building legislation, CAD and BIM, applicable to modern building construction with an emphasis on sustainable building technology.

The third year of the programme provides an understanding of the current theory and practice for sustainable building and includes a work placement in the final semester.  Students can avail of the Erasmus programme to do this work placement outside Ireland should they so desire.

In the final year the programme places emphasis on the core areas of sustainable building technology and construction project management and is centred around the completion of a substantial cross modular year-long retrofit project. The project module consists of two complementary elements, a retrofit project and a research topic on an aspect of applied construction technology that relates directly to the retrofit project.
