Department of Computing & Electronic Engineering
The Department of Computing and Electronic Engineering offers a number of programmes online including programmes at Level 7, 8 and 9. Electronic Engineering programmes are offered at Level 7 and 8. At Level 9 we offer an M.Eng. in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. This programme was developed in collaboration with a number of companies along the western corridor specialising in this area including Jaguar Land Rover, Analog Devices and Valeo.
Computing programmes in the areas of Software Development and Networking & Cloud Infrastructure are offered at Level 8 and we also offer a Higher Diploma in Computing which is a conversion course for those with an existing Level 8 in a non-computing discipline. At Level 9 we offer an MSc in Data Science, which was launched in January 2020. Our computing programmes were developed in consultation with our industry partners in the TechNorthWest Cluster and a number of ICT companies nationally with a view to meeting the current demand in the industry for computing graduates. The TechNorthWest Cluster is a group comprised of many of the leading ICT employers from the region including Overstock, LiveTiles and Cora Systems. IT Sligo has played a central role in supporting the emergence of an ICT Cluster in the region.
