You should possibly consider studying environmental science or environmental engineering in third level.

You would also need to consider if you would like do quite a bit of driving during your day and to be able to oragnise your own work plans as both these things are important.

Administrative?
Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and 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.

Summary... header image

Delivered over 3 years, it combines a range of comprehensive theory and practical skills development. Each year consists of two 12-week terms. The course will commence in September and can be taken on a full time or part-time basis. The programme is taught using a combination of classroom based and blended learning techniques. This allows the learner to access classes in person or using on-line facilities. In certain modules attendance may be a requirement.

Course Details header image

The programme is interactive and draws upon a mixture of academic and experiential learning approaches across the programme. For those undertaking the programme on a part-time basis, elements of some modules may be delivered through blended learning approaches. This means that students will engage with some learning through face to face sessions and additional learning will be facilitated through an on-line learning community. All students in years two and three must engage in simulated and real practice learning environments. This is considered essential in this domain of practice.
