What are your interests?



Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

International Olympiad in Informatics

This year the International Olympiad in Informatics is in Almaty, Kazakhstan(25th July - 2nd August 2015) and we will be sending a full Irish team of fourstudents to the competition.

Therefore the top eight senior students from the finals will be invited to the AIPO-IOI training camp (22nd-24th June 2015) here on campus in DCU.

This will be an intensive 3 day camp in the strategies and techniques required to solve problems at the IOI. The best four students from this training camp will be select to represent Ireland at the IOI (fully funded).

We would like to thank Fidelity Investments and DCU for their continued generous sponsorship of this event.
