About the Course

The aim of this programme is to produce graduates with the skills knowledge and competence to enable them to work in the IT area with an emphasis on the management of the information technology infrastructure within a business. The course would particularly suit anyone who already works in information technology. The course is also suitable for individuals who are interested in information technology as a future career but who may have limited experience in this sector. No previous qualification in information technology is needed.

Flexible Course Delivery
A Flexible Information Technology Education (FLITE) programme.

This programme is delivered using a blended learning model so students have some choice about when they attend. This allows each student to match their study with home, family, work or social commitments.

  • Classes and laboratories are delivered typically 2.5 or 3 evenings per week.
  • Attendance is only compulsory for continuous assessments. (An assessment schedule is given at the beginning of the semester.)
  • You choose what to attend based on your own skills and knowledge – use the Saturday sessions to catch up if you don’t make a particular class.
  • On Saturday mornings tutors are available provide support with the subjects on the programme. Typically people seek to go over material where they missed a class during the week or seek extra help with areas they are finding difficult. Extra classes can be arranged in response to demand.
  • All lecture notes and a range of other supporting resources are available over the web via a learning management system.

Entry Level

If under 23 years, applicants must have a grade D3 in a minimum of five subjects in the Leaving Certificate examinations, (this must include Maths and English/Irish) or a FETAC Level 5 qualification or equivalent. Mature students (over 23 years) may be exempted from this requirement and are eligible to apply. All applicants must have competence in spoken and written English. Eligible candidates may be interviewed.

 

Work Placement
Completion of a graded work placement element is a requirement of this programme. If you are in work and already working in the IT area, you can gain you work placement credits as you do your daily job. Alternatively, the Institute will make every effort to facilitate a work placement with a suitable company for you. However the co-operating companies normally require you to pass a work placement interview.
