If you are considering starting in the food/ catering or hospitality sectors, you should consider whether you like working shift work and you should like working in a pressured environment .

It is a very fulfilling and rewarding sector to work in though and every day is different with new skills being added to your skillset all of the time . If you are considering moving into the management side of things, then you should be able to co ordinate tasks and people to achieve results and you should like an ever changing work environment.

Summary... header image

In the first three years students will gain knowledge and develop skills in surveying, construction management, building contracts, sustainable building technology, building legislation, CAD and BIM, applicable to modern building construction with an emphasis on sustainable building technology.

The third year of the programme provides an understanding of the current theory and practice for sustainable building and includes a work placement in the final semester.  Students can avail of the Erasmus programme to do this work placement outside Ireland should they so desire.

In the final year the programme places emphasis on the core areas of sustainable building technology and construction project management and is centred around the completion of a substantial cross modular year-long retrofit project. The project module consists of two complementary elements, a retrofit project and a research topic on an aspect of applied construction technology that relates directly to the retrofit project.
