The Student - Career Interests
This course is typically suited for people with the following Career Interests. If these interests do not describe you, this course may prepare you for work you may not find satisfying.
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.
The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with sophiscticated technology. These types prefer mentally stimulating environments and often pay close attention to developments in their chosen field.
Career opportunities are excellent. In recent years all of the graduates have gained excellent opportunities for employment or have opted to engage in research. The industrial links coupled with the work placement and the final year project mean that the BSc in Electrical Services and Energy Management is the ‘go-to’ programme for prospective employers in this sector.
Graduates have gained employment in a diverse range of industries that includes food production, manufacturing, data centres, wind farms, and electrical consultancy. Companies such as Intel, AECOM, Wind Prospect, ESB, ESB International, Mercury Engineering, JV Tierney and Amazon are among those who have employed our graduates, many of whom have progressed into technical management roles with high salaries.
