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.

DCU again named as one of the World's Top Young Universities

Posted on June 27, 2019

For the eighth year running, Dublin City University has been ranked in the top 100 of the world’s young universities, with a ranking of 94.

The Times Higher Education Young University Rankings list the world’s best universities that are aged 50 years or under. They aim to highlight a new breed of high-performing universities that have managed to join the world elite over decades rather than centuries, and that have the potential to become the next global academic powerhouses.

President of DCU, Professor Brian MacCraith, welcomed DCU’s success in these newly published rankings: “While recognising that ranking systems are limited in their ability to capture the quality and impact of universities, DCU is very pleased to maintain its position in the top 100 of the World’s Young Universities. This is a testament to the commitment, excellence and expertise of our staff in DCU across all areas of our activity”.
