The Teaching and Learning Environment
Our mission is to create a fresh, challenging learning environment that teaches the best skills and techniques in computing science, and that empowers students to embark on a lifetime of learning and development in a rapidly changing field.
Griffith College Dublin strives to create a relevant, fresh, challenging, and exciting learning environment. Our aim is to give our students the skills to develop professional software systems using current techniques, and give them the ability to learn new techniques and approaches through a lifetime of learning in an evolving field.
Staff in the Computing Science Faculty
Our Faculty’s lecturers have a wealth of experience and expertise for students to draw on. In addition, we have many part-time lecturers from industry and academic research institutions, who keep us abreast of emerging specialist skills and the latest technological developments. Career prospects for computing graduates continue to be good. The opportunities are many, varied, and rewarding. Our task is to help you make the most of them.
Founded in the early 1980’s, the Faculty of Computing Science has continually demonstrated its commitment to designing and delivering programmes that are not only academically strong but also reflect current trends in the computing industry. Our programmes are continually reviewed and re-designed in order to hold their relevance, and to ensure that students receive an up-to-date and enjoyable course.
The reputation of our postgraduate, degree, and certificate courses has been widely recognised in the industry as demonstrated by the funding of students to undertake programmes and the employment of GCD graduates.
All degree programmes offered by the Computing Faculty are validated by the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC). On completion of the degree programmes, students are eligible to progress onto Level 9 Masters programmes
