Course content

Overview

The Higher Diploma in Information Technology is a postgraduate conversion course intended for graduates whose primary degrees are not in Computing and Information Technology. On completion of the course participants would be expected to reach a level of competence equivalent to that of 3-year computer science graduates.

Career Options

Information Technology and Software Development is one of Ireland’s foremost export sectors driving the smart economy. Most of the leading multinationals have made significant investment in Ireland along with hundreds of other indigenous Irish companies. The industry has a wide range of strengths in insurance and banking applications, telecommunications, e-learning, healthcare and systems software. One of the major needs identified by software companies is for more people with expertise in computing combined with other domain specific knowledge such as a business qualification. This is where a blend of the Higher Diploma in Information Technology with an existing degree qualification can open many job opportunities.

Information Technology is an interesting area of study with a broad educational value that opens many doors. The flexibility of career paths, and the wide range of business, social, medical and artistic areas with which computing interacts can make it particularly attractive to women.
