Course Description

Computing - Software Development

This postgraduate programme offers rewarding and challenging possibilities for learners interested in undertaking a conversion programme in the area of Software Development, and its application in an enterprise environment. Given the scale of the IT sector in Ireland, and the current expansion of roles associated with the IT sector, it is projected that there will be healthy demand for talented Computing/ IT graduates over the next number of years. The aim of this programme is to provide noncomputing graduates with an opportunity to develop the knowledge base, professional attitudes, and leadership and teamwork skills necessary to pursue a career as a software engineer. The course also aims to provide the student with the opportunity to engage in independent research in state of the art software engineering and technology.
