Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

I would advise somebody considering this job to talk to people who are engineers already. They should try to talk to people working in different areas of engineering as even when people do the same degree they can have very different day to day jobs, from full time office based jobs to full time site based jobs.

Also it is important to remember that even if you complete an engineering degree you are not limited to a purely technical career as there are plenty of other areas you can get involved in like project management or finance.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Newpark jazz education programmes move to DCU

Renowned Newpark jazz education programmes move to DCU

*Subject to accreditation.

It is proposed that from September 2017 the BA in Jazz Performance, currently offered by Newpark Music Centre will be renamed the BA in Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance, and will be accredited by DCU.  A key feature of this programme includes the proposed continuation of an opportunity for students on the programme to transfer into Berklee College of Music in Boston (www.berklee.edu), one of the most prestigious music schools in the world in the field of contemporary music.

Proposed programme modules include Instrumental and Vocal Tuition, Aural Training, Ensemble Performance, Composition and Arranging, Jazz History, and Music Business. Application to the programme will be through the CAO, with the audition/performance assessment, subject to accreditation, taking place on Saturday, 8 April  for September 2017 entry. An aural/theory test is not required. 

As entry will be by audition, this will be a restricted entry programme, meaning prospective students will need to have selected this as one of their choices when completing their CAO application in February – availing of the CAO Change of mind facility will not be an option.

Please visit the DCU website for further information: DCU - BA in Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance
