Students interested in a career in Manufacturing and Technology can choose DT9279.
These programs are offered as CONVERSION programmes specifically aimed at science graduates interested in a career in the Pharmaceutical or related industries. So whether your original degree was in science on the one hand, or engineering and technology on the other, you are equally likely to benefit. Due to its excellent reputation, our entrants come from a wide range of Universities from Ireland and overseas and represent all science disciplines. Each year we also have a small number of International students from both within and outside the EU. All have found the breadth, depth and rigor of this programme to be both stimulating and challenging. In consequence, it has benefitted them greatly in developing their careers.
