Student Voice

“I ndiaidh dom bunchéim a bhaint amach i dteangacha, bhí sé mar sprioc agam obair san earnáil ghnó ach gan taithí ar bith agam ar a leithéid. Ba dheis iontach an MSc le tuiscint a fháil ar réimse leathan ábhar gnó agus ar theicneolaíocht an eolais. Anois tá mé ag obair i gcomhairleacht teicneolaíochta agus is cinnte gan an cháilíocht sin agus an taithí a fuair mé ar an chúrsa nach mbeadh an post seo faighte agam.” 

 

“After I completed my undergraduate degree in languages, my goal was to work in the business sector but I hadn’t the necessary experience. The MSc i nGnó agus i dTeicneolaíocht an Eolais programme was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain a better understanding of a wide range of business and information technology subjects. I am now working in technology consultancy and without this qualification and the experience I gained by doing this course, I wouldn’t have been offered a post like this.”
