About

The Computer Science and Information Technology programme at National University of Ireland, Galway has a flexible course structure, where students can choose to study a range of Next-Generation Technology areas including: Digital Media and Games, Enterprise Informatics, Energy Informatics, Computational Mathematics, Scientific Computing and Medical/ Bio-informatics.

Overview

We depend on electronic devices, such as computers and mobile phones, computer software and networks to store, process, transmit, retrieve and manipulate information. 

Computer Science and Information Technology students at National University of Ireland, Galway will cover the technology used in these devices and will focus on the development of the software applications that make these devices useful.

As part of this four-year course, students will undertake an eight month (January - August) off-campus work placement in an industrial setting following completion of their thrid year of study. In the event that no external placement is available, students will be given projects on campus. This work experience programme gives students an opportunity to work on projects relevant to their study and significantly improves their chances of obtaining employment after graduation. Read more about Engineering work placements.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the BSc in Computer Science & Information Technology are highly skilled and are equipped to take on employment as professional engineers, designers and consultants in a range of organisations, specialising in areas such as software design and development, digital media and games, IT consultancy, telecommunications and medical informatics. Career prospects for IT/computing graduates are very strong in Ireland and throughout the world. The government’s Expert Group on Future Skill Needs has highlighted a shortfall in the number of IT/computing graduates as the number of students studying IT/computing is not adequate to meet the demands in virtually every sector.
