Job Opportunity Potential
A degree in computing offers countless employment opportunities both in Ireland and abroad. Recent government reports have highlighted a skills shortage in computing. This has resulted in an increase in graduate wages. The average graduate wage is now over €30k whilst some of our recent graduates have commanded wages of almost €45k.

Shortly after this, I completed my application and received a job offer as a Graduate Cloud Support Associate before I had finished my studies. My starting salary was €44,600."
Graduates can work as software developers, software quality assurance personnel, systems engineers, telecoms engineers, database developers and database administrators.
The course content has been designed to equip students with the technological skills employers are seeking. Our graduates are work ready. We have also listened to employers and incorporated soft skills such as team work, project management and presentation skills in our programme.
