This fully online diploma provides a focused programme of study in the area of software design and development, providing an insight into technical skills and modern industry techniques. Computer programming and design are taught in the diploma, as well as a number of important software engineering methodologies. This programme is part-time and runs over one year. You will study one online module every eight weeks. Rather than being a general-purpose award in computing, the intention of this diploma programme is to provide a coherent and complementary set of in-depth modules which bring the student up to speed on relevant software development tools and techniques. A full list of core and elective modules is available at itonline.nuigalway.ie. Progression opportunities: graduates can progress to Year Two of MScSED.
