The B.S. in Applied Computing (Common Entry) (Hons) from Waterford Institute of Technology prepares students for an exciting career in software development with specialisms in Automotive and Automation Systems, Computer Forensics and Security, Cloud and Networks, Games Development, Media Development or Internet of Things.


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.

  • 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.
