The Applied Computing (Common Entry) (Hons) program offered by Waterford Institute of Technology is designed for students interested in software development, but unsure where they would like to specialise.
After first year students get to choose their specialism, when they will know more about those strengths/interests. During year three of the programme, students embark on Work Placement (or study abroad). Most students find paid employment during this time.
During our Applied Computing (Common Entry) (Hons) programme students will:
- learn about the basics of computing/software development
- decide which of the specialisms they think best suits their personal interests, strengths and plans.
Career opportunities will be subject to your choice of specialist exit pathways. Applied Computing (Common Entry) has six specialist exit pathways. Towards the end of the first semester of the common entry degree programme you will be asked to select one of them to study in order to obtain your final award.
