My Biography

I manage the Work Placement Programme for undergraduate BSc students in the Dept. of Computing and Mathematics.  Placement is mandatory on all of our degree programmes and it's undertaken by our students during the 3rd year of their degree.  Students can choose between the following options :

 

  • Work Placement in Ireland or abroad.
    or
  • Erasmus Study Exchange or Study Abroad.

 

Our students have worked in a large variety of jobs and industry sectors, e.g. software development, games development, website design and development, networking, security and forensics, audio technology, IT support, graphic design.
