If you always want to know how things work and are fascinated by structures like grandstands or bridges then a career in civil and structural engineering may suit you. If in school you enjoy subjects like maths and physics, and since these would be the foundations to the engineering college course, you will probably enjoy the course. If you like the idea of working for a company where you could get to travel, then international companies such as ESB International would suit you well. Engineering is a good and challenging career so you have to want to be challenged in your work, to solve problems and to come up with ways to improve designs.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

blank Course Summary... blank

 

Applied psychology is when an understanding of psychology is applied to real world problems.

Consider how technology has changed many aspects of life such as the workplace, entertainment, socialising, learning, even how we shop. Sport, health and even learning are made clearer through the application of psychological principles.

New technologies are changing how we communicate and work, text messaging, social networking sites, online chat, etc. How will these change society and how we interact? Everything is made clearer through the application of psychological principles. This degree is a unique opportunity to study how psychology applies to everyday life, especially our use of technology, and how it can create new ways to improve our quality of life.
