Science and technology sectors are thriving and Irish students are facing choices and opportunities like never before: hundreds of third-level courses, thousands of jobs, rewarding research, start-up support for the young entrepreneur.
Science Week 2012 begins on Monday and to mark it the Irish Independent is publishing a special 20-page supplement focussing on the key skills for the smart economy: what they are, and how and where to get them.
It will include
- An updated list of CAO courses for 2013 in the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) areas, along with the points for 2012.
- A simple, at-a-glance test that will help point you on the right career path.
- Advice on where the jobs are.
- Inspiring case studies of Irish students and graduates, giving a taste of the huge variety of fascinating roles to which a STEM course can lead.
