Tom Dunphy graduate of Software Systems Development completed an Ordinary Degree in WIT before continuting on to study the Honours Degree
"During the course I took part in work experience in the second semester of third year. I worked in Bausch & Lomb gaining experience in software testing. This involved unit testing and functional testing on many different software applications as part of a global ERP system upgrade project.
I completed an Ordinary Degree in Software Systems Development, then an Honours Degree in Software Systems Development.
The lecturers at WIT really helped a lot in projects, problems and queries that were made. They really go that extra mile to give you the help that you need to achieve your goals in college.
I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to work with new software tools and technologies that really can impact how companies operate and how people live their lives.
Every day in college was a challenge and unpredictable but that is what made it so interesting.”
