Is this the course for you?
This Masters programme is a two semester taught programme in Computing which focuses on topics applicable to Systems and Software Security. This is followed by a placement and then a dissertation. The dissertation will offer the student the opportunity to apply a range of topics covered in the taught part of the programme to demonstrate an extended knowledge and ability in that area. The dissertation will normally be completed over one to two semesters. From an industry point of view, this programme was developed in partnership with the IT industry and with Pramerica in particular.
The objective of developing the course is to ensure a supply of highly-skilled and experienced graduates for key employers locally and throughout Ireland. The existence of the course and the placement reflects the commitment of employers to this field of expertise.
Graduates from this course can expect to find attractive employment opportunities locally and nationally as there is a huge shortage of IT security graduates.
