The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

How We Work

01.

Scope Market

Computing is a vast field. We study the market carefully to identify the basket of skills that will make our students stand out. This is key to arriving to the jobs market with the right in-demand skillset.

02.

Technical Expertise

We re-examine our modules every year, tweaking, improving, refining. We ruthlessly drop technologies that have lost their shine in the market. We practice what we teach - this web site is built by our own staff.

03.

Project Work

In 3rd and 4th year, all our computing students build real working, year-long projects under careful supervision. We don't limit what you build. Employers prize this individual exposition of students' work. And we offer placement in industry to all programmes.

  • My degree at IT Sligo taught me to think ‘outside the box’ and come up with innovative ideas. Rachel Masterson, Web Dev

  • The most energetic, amazing, surprising 4 years of my life. Padraic Egan, Systems & Networking
