Be the best in the world! This is no ordinary degree prgramme, this is the prgramme that has produced the best in the world - recent graduate Olivier Bal Petre won WorldSkills Gold in Cloud Computing in Kazan, Russia, 2019.

This three year programme gives a great grounding in the essentials of computing leading to rewarding careers. Employment prospects are excellent with a shortage of Computing graduates currently and predicted both in Ireland and internationally. We use a common year 1 where you develop essential skills and get to understand your particular strengths.

We then give you a choice of specialising in IT Management or Software Development. If you choose to take the add-on final year additional options in Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning are available. Both the Software Development specialisation and the IT Management specialisation are built around a common core of computing knowledge including Systems Analysis, Web Development, Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, Software Quality & Test, Databases, Networking, Operating Systems, Python Development, Discrete Mathematics & Statistics.

The software stream focuses more on data structures, algorithms and languages such as Python, Java and C++ which are widely used in industry. A software project exploring delivered using agile project management principles. The IT Management stream develops skills in Scripting using languages such as Python, Linux and PowerShell and covers advanced networking, cloud computing as well as service management. A team project built around Agile Project Management Principles is also part of the curriculum. 

  • The six month placement period can be spent in partner colleges and linked enterprises across France, Spain, Austria, Germany, Mexico and more.
  • A six-month long internship in Year 3 is part of the programme and gives you a real advantage giving you industry experience and contacts.  With around one hundred students placed annually across Computing programmes in Tallaght the list of placement companies is long and includes major companies such as Amazon AWS, SAP, fidelity & Bank of America as well as Tallaght University Hospital, Evros and many others.

Lara Chiappetta Lagioia, Student

TU756, Computing General Entry (previously Computing)

I chose TU Dublin due to the possibility to enrol on a Level 7 course without having to commit to a Level 8 straight away. Almost all lectures are approachable and available outside their own lectures; the same applies to the department staff. Lots of hands-on practice in labs and the possibility to do work placement in 3rd year.

The number of students per class is not as big as other universities, which helps proximity with lecturers as well. Every year a lecturer is assigned as the year's tutor, and that is very useful to have a point of contact. CA schedule given at the beginning of the semester helps me to organise and prioritize the studies. Don't be afraid to try because even if you struggle, there will be lots of people willing to help you get through it. I feel that lecturers are genuinely interested in what's best for students.

An add-on one year Honours B. Sc. In Compiuting is available. Specialisations across Software Development, IT Management, Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learing are possible.
