Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out there.

Linguistic
The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Summary... header image

Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing civil engineering facilities so they can safely resist the forces to which they are subjected. All structures from bridges to buildings, harbours to airports must be able to meet these requirements. In addition to the technical skills required for the above work a Civil Engineer will also have competencies in related fi elds such as project and asset management, health and safety, and water and wastewater treatment.

Mechanical Engineering involves the design, manufacture and operation of products that have motion or have internal moving parts including machines and aircraft to major power plants and process equipment facilities.

Chemical and Biopharmaceutical Engineering involves turning raw materials into fi nished products. The fi nished products end up in pharmacies, supermarkets, petrol stations and many other places and the design, operation and management of these products are the responsibility of the Chemical and Biopharmaceutical Engineer.

Biomedical Engineering combines engineering knowledge with an appreciation of the functioning of the human body, covering topics from the design and development of artifi cial joints, to equipment for medical diagnosis and treatment, to the implanting of biomaterials or biomedical devices in the human body.
