The BSc in Computational Thinking provides an accelerated route through the essentials of theoretical computer science and their mathematical foundations.
Further, it explores core themes in philosophy which ground the field and connect it with the broader agenda of a liberal education that seeks to understand and analyse human knowledge and thinking. The structure of the degree has been informed by feedback from leading companies in the computing industry, who emphasise the need for graduates with critical thinking skills.
In this degree you will acquire hands-on programming skills and advanced problem-solving techniques, and you will learn to think logically and analytically when approaching complex issues. You will also develop your creativity and communication skills. As a student, you will have access to NUI Maynooth's state-of-the-art computer labs as you acquire these skills.
Careers or Further Progression...
The abilities to think logically and solve real-world problems are fundamental to many disciplines, and are thus highly transferable. These skills are in high demand from major international companies and organisations in areas such as software development and analysis, mathematical and financial modelling, cryptography and security. The accelerated 3-year degree also feeds into a wide range of postgraduate masters in these areas. Career opportunities are many and varied.
