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 in recent years. Technology enterprises seek 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.
