The Department of Computer Science at Maynooth University was founded in 1987 and is located in the Eolas Building, a €20M state-of-the-art ICT hub, which opened in 2015. Our new laboratories and equipment provide excellent facilities for practical work and all our courses include a mix of lectures and lab work.
Acquire hands-on programming skills and advanced problem solving techniques in our dedicated computer science building (Eolas).
Spending time working in industry as part of your Computer Science and Software Engineering (ARTS) (CSA) program from Maynooth University enhances your employment opportunities once you graduate. We endeavour to provide a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere for learning through our Programming Support Centre, extensive assistance during practical work and we are always available outside of lectures to help our students.
Computing, programming and software skills are in high demand. Graphical interface design, medical imaging, video-based information systems, multimedia systems development, electronic publishing, computer-assisted translation, e-learning systems development, games development, website design and development, and software development are some areas to consider.
These skills are also valued in non-computing industries, such as financial services, business and administration, health services, and the automobile and aeronautics sectors.
Computer Science is a teaching subject at second level and therefore a career in education may also be possible.
