It won’t meander on about the famous old Claddagh or glorify the old person stench of certain local well-established taprooms.

Choose a degree in computer science for a career in global tech

image preview

It is coming up to CAO time of the year, and once again students are being bombarded with all sorts of course choices. However, the most lucrative course of all is often overlooked by many: computer science (or its related course electronics and computing). Computer science is a direct gateway to the global tech industry that has spawned the largest companies in the world such as Amazon, Microsoft, Stripe, and of course, Genesys, the global leader in cloud based software for customer care. Marc Andreessen, who developed the first widely used browser, Mosaic, stated that “software is eating the world”. This is being borne out as we see AirBnb (travel), Spotify (music), Netflix (television), Zoom (video conferencing), and many more disrupt their respective industries and change the way we live, work, and play.
