"The programme is well delivered as there is a nice balance between practical and classroom based learning. I found the lecturers to be some of the most helpful and engaging people I have come across during my studies as they take a hand on approach to getting students involved in class discussions and debates. All in all, the programme is an excellent foundation for finding future employment opportunities due to the high level of personal and professional development you will obtain. It helped open up numerous career opportunities for me so it is a programme that I would highly recommend."
"With a broad subject choice the Masters of Applied Science at NUI Galway allowed me to tailor the course to focus on the areas of interest to me which also complemented my science degree. Through team-oriented projects I developed better inter-personal skills and grew exponentially both professionally and personally. With a flexible course structure and forward thinking/innovative faculty the degree encourages and inspires entrepreneurship and innovation. The course is very relevant to current industrial practices as I found I had a working knowledge of the medical device industry from day one in my current job."
