QUB School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is hosting an information evening on Thursday 1st August 2019 from 18:30 – 20:30 in the Computer Science Building, 18 Malone Road.
The evening will be open to anyone who is interested in a career in the IT Sector whether they are considering a career change into the sector, a graduate in a discipline other than IT or someone who is considering returning to employment after a break.
We will be providing information on our long standing and award winning conversion course, the full time and part time MSc in Software Development. We’ll be highlighting the opportunity to study and complete the course in full time mode, enabling you within 12 months to gain the qualifications to enter employment in the computing sector. We’ll also detail the part-time mode of delivery of the course, with its evening delivery over a 2/3 year period for anyone who is currently employed and/or has commitments which would prevent them from undertaking the full-time study course. Some background information on the course may be found at: https://www.qub.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate-taught/software-development-part-time-msc/
The event is an opportunity to find out more about the course with a short talk detailing the course structure and application process, after which there will an opportunity to informally chat with our teaching staff, current students and recent graduates, as well as discover from the companies attending about the ample variety of career opportunities there are in the IT Sector. The course teaches all aspects from scratch so prior experience in the specialisms such as programming is not required. During the evening we’ll also provide you with an opportunity to gain some hands-on experience in programming and get a taste of how the course is taught and how our modules are delivered.
During the evening there will be short Experience Software Development sessions, where you may, if you wish, see how code is created and how our modules are delivered.
This informal event is free and refreshments with finger food will be provided.
