What is Bachelor of Science (Hons) Computer Science?

The DT228 BSc in Computer Science programme is a four year, full time, modular, honours degree programme in Computer Science offered by the Dublin Institute of Technology, School of Computing based in Kevin Street, Dublin 8. Graduates of this programme are equipped with the technical and creative skills to develop applications and systems for real world problems. The programme provides graduates with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of computer science as well as creative application design, practical problem solving and software engineering skills. Students on the programme have the opportunity of taking work placement in an IT-related company for a period of six months. The primary aim of the programme is to produce graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform as ICT practitioners in a broad range of commercial, industrial and public sector environments. Graduates of this programme will be eligible for careers in the ICT industry in such roles as application designers, programmers, analysts, system support and administration, database management or any role that involves the design and implementation of software or the management of organisational technology infrastructure. The course is strongly oriented towards the provision of practical skills. Students gain knowledge and experience of a range of tools, techniques, technologies and procedures employed by industry in the ICT sector, coupled with a strong theoretical appreciation and understanding of computer science and software engineering. Graduates will be adaptive to changing environments, both technical and organisational. Key to this is an ability to learn independently, and build upon fundamental and transferable skills acquired during the programme, as well as possessing the skills necessary to incorporate feedback and experience from prior work. A secondary aim of the programme is to allow students to specialise in a particular area of ICT. Students who successfully complete the early years of the course will have a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of computer science, which will lead to their focussing on the development of complete solutions in the latter years. Students in the later years of the course have the opportunity to specialise in specific areas of computer science and software engineering. The programme offers 4 streams of specialisation to the students.
