Software is a global industry with a strong presence in Dublin, considered as the Silicon Valley of Europe.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to work as a global software engineer or as an application developer, able to develop as needed in an ever-changing global industry.

On graduation, you’ll be qualified to work in the international IT industry in a wide range of computer roles. You’ll have a strong foundation in such areas as Internet development, cloud computing, mobile software, enterprise systems, artificial intelligence and games technology.

You’ll learn IT skills early on that are required in the international IT industry, including core software design and development skills as well as highly sought-after international skills such as global citizenship, software localisation, entrepreneurship, and creating webinars. You can also select to study a foreign language (German, Chinese or Korean).

In Year 3, you can undertake an International Industrial Placement in an IT company. In addition, all Year 3 students participate in the Global Classroom, a virtual, online classroom comprised of teams of international students on exchange at our international university partners. This emphasises the importance of globalisation and simulates how a team can design and develop software with team members in different locations.

In the final year, you can specialise in a variety of areas such as Enterprise Systems Development, Applied Intelligence or Digital Games Development & Simulation.

TU Dublin has strong links with global industry companies such as Google, Microsoft and IBM, through sponsorship and project co-operation. Students can showcase their final-year projects at our project fair and meet with industry company representatives.

Study Abroad Opportunities
If you do not undertake an International Industrial Placement, you must spend your second semester in Year 3 on an international study exchange at one of our university partners in Europe, China or Korea. There are also opportunities for spending all of Year 3 studying abroad, participating in our double-degree courses in either Germany, Finland or Korea.
