Shane Carty | MApplSc Enterprise Systems
The diverse range of topics covered allowed me to focus on the areas that interested me, while also introducing me to exciting new areas that I had not previously encountered. The course helped me to develop the skills sought after by employers, with a focus on business processes, innovation, and technology, while also strengthening my analytical abilities and critical thinking. I really loved that my fellow students came from a variety of different disciplines and backgrounds. This multidisciplinary approach was especially valuable during group assignments, as everyone was able to contribute their own specialist knowledge and skills, while at the same time learning from new perspectives.

Eamon McAndrew | MSc Biomedical Genomics
The short course format at the beginning of the MSc is a very effective style of teaching—it brings everyone up to a standard level of knowledge in the underlying biology and the ability to read and write code, while also establishing an intuitive understanding of the mathematics underpinning many of the methods used in the field of genomics. I would recommend this course to individuals interested in a career transition and to those wishing to develop skills to maximise employability in the long term.
