What are my career opportunities
Computing and ICT continue to be sectors of the Irish and world economies that display strong growth despite the downturn that has affected most other sectors. Technology enterprises are looking for graduates with a combination of skills. The areas most in demand are the core computing areas of programming and software skills as graduates with these tend to be most versatile and adaptable.
This three year BSc course will introduce you to a range of computing technologies and applications. You will be equipped with the skills and know-how to work in situations under supervision. You will be in a position to work in a technical support function as you gain experience.
You should also be well positioned to progress to an Honours award in the field of computing. Most graduates of the BSc progress to the Institute’s BSc (Hons) in Computing with Software Development Programme. Depending on their particular skill sets, ordinary degree graduates may find work in a support capacity initially and through work experience progress to more senior roles such as:
- Programmer/software developer in technology enterprises and areas where ICT is heavily used such as finance services, education and health care
- Developer of digital media and audio/video content
- Network technician and administrator
- Database administrator
- Web developer and web manager
