Do your best to find out the most you can about your specific engineering category, whether it be Electronics, Mechanical, Civil etc. Approach companies to try and get experience whilst you are at college, that way you have a running start on how to use the most up to date packages and instruments that companies have, and that then gets you the work experience when you finish college.

Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Transition Year Open Day

Transition year, it’s a chance to find out what interests you, what excites you and what inspires you. Above all, it’s a chance to explore. Our TY Open Day will give you a brief introduction to the courses offered in DCU presented by DCU students. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

• What’s it really like being a student in DCU

• Where will this course take me

• How many hours are spent in lectures and tutorials

• What’s an assignment

• How will I manage study and have a good time

• Aiming high and what to do to get there

There will also be representatives from HEAR, DARE, Academic and Sport Scholarships giving you the chance to find out alternative admission routes to DCU. We will let you know about the benefits of getting involved in Club and Society life – the heart and soul of DCU!

You can take a campus tour to visit some of the places you might be in a couple of years and throughout the day you can chat to DCU students and staff – they would love to answer any question you may have.

If you need more information, email: colette.obeirne@dcu.ie

This is a DCU Glasnevin Campus event only and there will be presentations and information available on the DCU Institute of Education courses.
