- Course Overview
2012 School of Computing Project Fair
See the projects that our students complete in final year. These projects represent the largest piece of work that the student will complete throughout their studies. Every year our students amaze us with their work using the very latest technologies and advanced computer science techniques.
Get a small taste of what life in DIT is like for students like you.
A 3rd year full-time student gives an opinion on the Degree in Computing:
“DT211 is an amazing course, there’s so much to learn from the staff teaching our course and even the staff teaching other courses! It is a course that will set you up for life. You can learn all the skills required in an IT workplace and any extra stuff can be found in the library. It’s accredited by the British Computing Society.”
A 3rd year Internship student gives an opinion on the Degree in Computing:
"I appreciate the ability to attend college part-time and work in a college relevant job (internship) for the final two years of my degree. Not only does this paid position allow me to give up my evening and weekend job (I get paid to be in college!) but also provides me with further training, experience and hopefully a full time job straight from college."
A graduate (2009) gives an opinion on the Degree in Computing:
“The DT211 programme has equipped me with the broad range of practical skills and hands-on experience required for a quick jump in the IT industry. DIT Staff in general and those working on the DT211 programme in particular are extremely supportive, in my experience. The opportunity to showcase my Final Year Project to several diverse audiences has helped me gain contacts and reputation in the industry in Ireland. My time in the internship programme led directly to an interesting job as a Technical Design Engineer in the telecoms industry. I would not hesitate to recommend DT211 to any prospective student. I am currently a Senior Network and Systems Administrator for an educational institute in Dublin. I consider my time in DT211 a vital and significant part of my securing this diverse range of IT employment.”
A graduate (2010) gives an opinion on the Degree in Computing:
“I transferred to B. Sc. in Computing from another programme. I started in Second year and immediately found many of the modules a lot easier to get my head around due to the more practical method of teaching employed. Many of the lecturers work together to deliver module material based around the same or similar case studies allowing for a much broader view of how a development cycle might work from start to finish.
I was lucky enough to get a position on the internship program in Hibernia Evros where I am now working full time. In my opinion the internship program is very valuable providing the student with some real world experience which can help with their studies and gaining a job after completing the course. My final year project was an integration system based on 2 separate systems that I interacted with during my duties on the internship.
The networking modules are very beneficial and covering the material for an industry certification like CCNA is also something that compliments any CV and provides valuable skills that have proved very useful as both a baseline for understanding more complex systems and for troubleshooting network devices.”
