Modern courses for modern career paths

At Waterford Institute of Technology we continually evolve our portfolio of courses to reflect the shifts in industry and in career path options. We have undergone a major transformation as we strive to meet third level students’ need for time and space to decide on the career path for them, combined with a modern set of courses that meet the requirements of employers in Ireland and abroad

Unprecedented range of broad entry options

The focus of our portfolio is on common entry courses and we offer at least one programme in each of our five academic schools. We now have common entry courses in Business, Engineering, Health Science, Exercise Science, Humanities, Computing and Science giving students an unprecedented level of choice across our portfolio.


From our experience talking to sixth years and first year undergraduate students, we know that making decisions about courses can be difficult to juggle with Leaving Cert study.

For some, this results in a decision to choose a narrow area of study rather than keeping their options open.

Our range of broad entry programmes are designed with the student in mind and give students who know what discipline they are suited to that extra bit of time to choose the right specialism for them.

All CAO courses

While we have six broad entry courses at Level 8, our portfolio contains many standalone and specialist courses. To view the full 70 CAO Undergraduate programmes, visit
