Are you happy with your choice of course?



I have been happy with the course in general. But sudden change of modules, curriculum's in modules and 1 or 2 bad lecturers have disappointed me to be honest. I'm sure this will be sorted in time for future students though.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week? (labs,tutorials,lectures,etc)


Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?


Is your course weighted more on

Continuous assessment

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?

I don't know

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

The modules that have less theory and more basis on actual technical aspects. Modules to do with programming and database systems. Artificial Intelligence, Database Systems to name 2.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

Modules based on design or theory.

Was your course what you expected?


What do you wish you had known before choosing this course?

That the modules we were taking were in the process of being changed.

Helpful leaving cert (or equivalent) subjects?

No leaving cert subjects can really prepare you for this course but if I had to name a few Physics, Maths, English in that order. A knowledge of Business and Economics may help you in your career after also.

Library facilities

Great always a seat available.
