Science technology engineering and maths promoted ahead of CAO cut off
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Keep science, technology, engineering and maths courses top of mind as the CAO “change of mind” period closes this weekend on 1 July. That’s the advice from Discover Science & Engineering (DSE), which publishes www.science.ie. Dr Graham Love, Director of DSE and Policy and Communications at Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) said:
“Since the start of this year, 4,000 technology jobs have been announced for Ireland with companies such as Amazon… I congratulate students that have already made the decision to undertake a science, technology or engineering related course at third level and I encourage those who may be filling out their change of mind form this week to consider such courses.”
The CAO announced this year that there has been an 18% increase in the number of applications by school-leavers for STEM courses, indicating growing awareness of the key areas driving the jobs of the future.
Leave The Old Job Behind
When you start a new job, take the skills, knowledge, and experience with you. Leave the old position, people, and company behind.
