What is DevOps?
DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support. DevOps is also characterized by operations staff making use many of the same techniques as developers for their systems work.
Is this Programme for Me?
The course is designed to run in part-time mode initially. In part-time mode the student can study the four taught modules and one placement module over two academic years and do the dissertation over the summer or during the following year depending on circumstances. The dissertation component for the Masters will offer the student the opportunity to apply a range of topics covered in the taught part of the course to demonstrate an extended knowledge and ability in that area.
From an industry point of view, this programme was developed in partnership with the IT industry in the north-west. 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 reflects the commitment of employers to this field of expertise. Graduates from this course can expect to find attractive employment opportunities locally and nationally.
Note: If a student is in employment and is unable to source a DevOps related placement through their employer a suitable industry-facing project will also meet the requirements for the Placement module.
