Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Most graduates work in Landscape Architecture practice, either with private consultancies or in local government. After two years of approved graduate work experience, graduates can sit the Irish Landscape Institute (ILI) professional practice exams leading to full professional membership of the ILI. 

Many of the skills acquired during the Landscape Architecture programme are transferable to other areas. Some graduates progress to work in education (design or environmental science), or as landscape managers with responsibility for the upkeep, care and development of particular sites. Many others progress to further academic study in such diverse areas as spatial planning, environmental resource management or environmental psychology.




Course is the only one of its kind in Ireland. It uniquely focuses on giving you the scientific base on which to build your creative, technical and management skills needed to work in this expanding area.
