25 Years of Computing in IT Tallaght

Study with Experienced Industry Guides
IT Tallaght’s Computing courses have been successful from their first days providing graduates with an ability ‘to hit the ground running’ and ‘real hands-on skills’. The determination by the Department of Computing to provide the skills, knowledge and attributes in demand by industry has always been part of the IT Tallaght Computing story – look now and find degrees that are current in delivering hands-on experience of up to data technologies while not neglecting long term Computer Science/ Operations knowledge. All this is achieved through ongoing dialog with local partners such as SAP, Amazon, IBM and Microsoft.

Remember also we allow a Choice at the end of year 1 – our flexible approach is based on our experience that students often only discover or confirm their true strengths and interests having experienced the range of computing. We have bundled together essential commons skills into year 1 to allow you make your choice of specialisation again at the end of year 1.
