This three-year programme is aimed at giving you the skills and knowledge you need to work at a technical level in the computing industry. You’ll learn not only the latest coding techniques but also how to specify and design systems for business, for the web, for hospitals, for the future. As part of this programme, you will work in a team environment to develop software projects.

The programme covers a range of areas from how to design and develop IT systems to how to develop for the web and how to link together computing systems. 
On graduating, you can look forward to obtaining interesting, lucrative employment in Ireland’s ICT sector, which employs over 100,000 people. Seven of the top ten IT companies in the world are located in Ireland, and the Government’s Expert Group for Predicting Future Skills Needs reports that computing graduates are in short supply in Ireland.

This programme shares a common first year with the B.Sc. (IT Management) Programme. Students can transfer from the Computing stream to the IT Management programme (subject to places being available) at the end of Year 1 if they feel that this stream suits their skills better.
