The Computing (Information Systems Processes) program from Waterford Institute of Technology offers students the opportunity to explore issues such as human-computer interaction, psychology, computer ethics, and systems development in the human-centred tradition.
The organisational aspects consider successful business processes and how these can be supported through information infrastructures such as supply-chain management systems. Finally, the technological aspects look to trends in information systems development, such as emerging methodologies, software development, and technological systems. The programme also includes a research project and dissertation, thus allowing students to investigate an individual area of personal interest.
An applied work-based research project and dissertation may be particularly appropriate for working or part-time students.
The programme will benefit graduates seeking to develop the capability to make real and immediate contributions to the competitiveness of business organisations through the innovative use of information systems. Graduates of this programme are employed in both national and international companies in a variety of roles such as: project managers, software engineers, supply chain managers, computer services managers, and business systems analysts.
