Science & Technology

Science & Technology Studies is an interdisciplinary programme area involving disciplines with Science, Engineering and Commerce at NUI Galway. It aims to provide you with a comprehensive grounding in the theoretical foundations of science and engineering, and introduces you to areas of specialist knowledge and operations found in today’s advanced technological environments. Technology-rich industries such as Pharmaceutical, Medical Devices, Biotechnology and Manufacturing are all featured within the Science & Technology Studies curriculum.

The discipline provides a more broad-based education than traditional Science or Engineering Degrees. Students from these programmes become well-rounded graduates with an appreciation of integrated enterprise processes and also encompass critical thinking skills. 

The modular structure of these programmes 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. Through a combination of distance and online resources, on-campus tutorials and labs and company-based projects you will engage in exciting materials and subjects providing you with up-skilling opportunities in areas such as medical device science, environmental sustainability and other unique disciplines.
