Details Details
Computers have become a part of everybody’s daily life. In the Maynooth University Department of Computer Science we teach how computer systems work, with a particular focus on software, and we research how computer systems will develop into the future.
Our courses cover a wide spectrum of topics from software to computer hardware, from internal details of operating systems to computer applications, and from software engineering practice to computational theory. We provide excellent facilities for practical work, with most of our modules including a mix of lectures and lab work. Many of our students also spend time working on placement in industry as part of their course.
These specialised degrees in Computer Science (MH601 and MH602) are designed for students who have already decided they want to concentrate on the subject from the start.
All options share a common first year in Computer Science (plus Mathematics and options to take other subjects) after which students can choose which degree path they wish to pursue. All options include foundational and general modules and Computer Science. In the case of MH601, the other subjects in first year are from the Arts range, whereas in MH602 they are from the Science range.
Computer Science and Software Engineering through Arts or Science gives a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of computation and software development and can lead to careers with large multinational companies and companies developing specialised software. Multimedia, Mobile and Web Development includes design and programming for the growing area of mobile and web applications.
All options include teamwork, a major project and a six month industrial placement (subject to availability) as well as modules in advanced topics such as computer vision, theoretical computer science, robotics, cryptography and neurocomputation.
