The Higher Diploma in Science in Computer Science is an 2 year online conversion course specifically designed to allow existing non-ICT level 8 graduates to acquire the industry-relevant ICT and software development skills, expertise and practical experience required to become suitable candidates for employment in the ICT domain in general and in software development in particular.

The course will comprise of an intensive taught course of core programming and computer science modules followed by a 6-month work placement. It includes a combination of fundamental concepts and practical exposure to problem solving, programming, and the broader software development ecosystem (increasingly known as “DevOps”), including system administration and security.

This is a partly funded course, which is funded by the Department of Education & Skills and the Higher Education Authority as part of the Action Plan to tackle the ICT skills gap identified by the Forfás Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN).

Work Placement for the Higher Diploma in Science in Computer Science is for a period of between four and 6 months and takes place in semester 4, the last semester from June to December.
