BSc Information Technology Management / Bainistíocht Teicneolaíochta Faisnéise

The programme would particularly suit anyone who has already worked in an information technology role and who now needs to update or up skill in order to access current job opportunities. If you are under 23 years old on 1 January you must have achieved Grade D3 in five Leaving Certificate subjects, including Mathematics and English or Irish or a FETAC Level 5 qualification or equivalent unless otherwise stated.

That is 5 subjects: O6/H7, English or Irish: O6/H7 and Mathematics: O6/H7, or better to apply for year one of this programme. Mature students (over 23 years on 1 January 2020) may be exempted from this requirement and are eligible to apply if they take part in our Head Start Maths Programme. All applicants must prove competence in spoken and written English. Eligible candidates may be interviewed.

The aim of this programme is to produce graduates with the skills knowledge and competence to enable them to work in the IT area with an emphasis on the management of the information technology infrastructure within a business. The course would particularly suit anyone who already works in information technology. The course is also suitable for individuals who are interested in information technology as a future career but who may have limited experience in this sector. No previous qualification in information technology is needed.

Flexible Course Delivery
A Flexible Information Technology Education (FLITE) programme. This programme is delivered using a blended learning model so students have some choice about when they attend. This allows each student to match their study with home, family, work or social commitments.

  • Classes and laboratories are delivered typically 2.5 or 3 evenings per week.

Attendance is only compulsory for continuous assessments. (An assessment schedule is given at the beginning of the semester.) · You choose what to attend based on your own skills and knowledge – use the Saturday sessions to catch up if you don’t make a particular class. · On Saturday mornings tutors are available provide support with the subjects on the programme. Typically people seek to go over material where they missed a class during the week or seek extra help with areas they are finding difficult. Extra classes can be arranged in response to demand. · All lecture notes and a range of other supporting resources are available over the web via a learning management system.

Graduates from this programme have gone on to pursue roles as data analysts, support engineers, QA consultants, security engineers, network engineers, database administrators and IT system managers with such companies as SAP, SAGE, Microsoft, IBM, Equinox, Version1 and Bank of Ireland.

Careers Development and Experiential Learning Completion of a graded work placement element is a requirement of this programme. If you are in work and already working in the IT area, you can gain you work placement credits as you do your daily job. Alternatively, the University will make every effort to facilitate a work placement with a suitable company for you. However the co-operating companies normally require you to pass a work placement interview. Career planning events e.g. Curriculum Vitae preparation, Developing a LinkedIn Profile and Mock interviews are included in this programme over the two semesters. An individual project is also completed over the two semesters.
