Career opportunities

There is a strong demand for computing graduates both in Ireland and internationally and our new BSc (Hons) in Computing is designed to match that demand. IT Sligo has a strong track record in computing as evidenced by our success in the International Microsoft Imagine Cup. The four year honours degree will give you a strong foundation in a broad range of computing technologies; including programming, system design, database design, operating systems, mathematics and web design. In later years students are offered the opportunity to choose which areas they would like to study. They will be able to specialise in software development or in systems and networking. Students will undertake a work placement in the third year. This provides an introduction to the workplace and students then return to fourth year where they consolidate their newly developed skills. The course content has been designed to equip students with the technological skills employers are seeking. Our graduates are work ready. We have also listened to employers and incorporated soft skills such as team work, project management and presentation skills in our programme.
