Science & Technology

Science & Technology Studies is offered as a part-time modular programme, which focuses on the knowledge and skill requirements of high-tech industries. The modular structure is designed with flexibility in mind, enabling you to balance study with work and other commitments and to accumulate credits over a time frame that suits your lifestyle. Learning is delivered jointly by NUI Galway and the University of Limerick through a combination of distance and online resources, on-campus tutorials and labs and company-based projects. A series of specialist diplomas in a number of specialist areas are also offered to diploma or degree graduates wishing to up-skill in areas such as medical device science, environmental sustainability and other unique areas.

A number of programmes in information technology are also offered specialising in the areas of Software Engineering and Database Technologies.  These programmes are available in a fully online format with student interaction and examinations taking place entirely online.
