  • Computing, programming and software skills are in high demand. Graphical interface design, medical imaging, video-based information systems, multimedia systems development, electronic publishing, computer-assisted translation, e-learning systems development, games development, website design and development, and software development are some areas to consider.
  • These skills are also valued in non-computing industries, such as financial services, business and administration, health services, and the automobile and aeronautics sectors.
  • Computer Science is a teaching subject at second level and therefore a career in education may also be possible.
Postgraduate study options currently include:
> MSc Computer Science (Software Engineering)
> Double MSc in Dependable Software Systems (with University of St Andrews, Scotland and Université de Lorraine, France)
> MSc Geocomputation
> MSc Data Science
> MSc/PhD Computer Science (by research)
