About the Course
This three year programme provides you with the skills and knowledge to manage the Information Technology infrastructure in an organisation. In the modern world nearly every business is dependent on its use of information technology for its survival. How is your on-line bank account safe? How long would an airline last if their booking system crashed regularly? Why did Amazon and eBay thrive while others have disappeared? How do you keep your Web presence refreshed and interesting so that customers will buy?
Whether its sending txts or downloading music, banking or health systems, business or industry all these organisations and activities need information technology professionals to manage, plan and upgrade their IT systems. The range of careers open to your include database administration, web developer, ebusiness development, network support, systems support engineer. An important element of this programme is the work placement which helps give you real preparation for working in the IT sector.
It is important to note that IT professionals often work as part of a team, make presentations and are called on to give advice on new and emerging technologies. Theses abilities are addressed by the group working and presentation elements of the programme as well as by the work placement which forms a substantial element of this programme.
There is currently a shortage of graduates with information technology skills and this is predicted to continue over the foreseeable future. Over the course of this programme you will obtain knowledge of information systems, networking, web and multimedia development as well as business and management knowledge. This combination of real technical knowledge allied to business and management skills is highly sought after in the marketplace.
You may also on completion of this programme proceed to the B. Sc. Honours in IT Management on offer here in IT Tallaght. It is also interesting to note that this programme shares a common first year with the B.Sc. (Computing) stream and that student are in a position to transfer from the IT Management programme to the Computing programme (subject to places being available) at the end of year 1 should they feel that this stream suits their skills better.
