Industry is working very closely with the Department of Computing & Mathematics to shape the third level curriculum and to ensure a stable pipeline of graduates to fill the over 7,000 vacancies in computing roles in Ireland. This has led to computing graduates regularly achieving top salaries starting out in their new careers.
The Work Placement Programme for Computing students at SETU Waterford is an integral, accredited module for all of our third year undergraduate students. Work Placement gives students the opportunity to apply the theory they’ve acquired on their degree programme to real-world problems and tasks, in an industry setting. It also enables third level institutions to interface more effectively with industry partners and to build relationships with companies in the region and nationally.
