Postgraduate Diploma in Software Design in Digital Transformation
About:
Digital transformation or “Industry 4.0” is of vital importance to ensure competitive advantage. Digitalisation involves the use of technology to automate and optimize processes, improve efficiency and reduce costs by utilising artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics and cloud computing. Studies estimate that digitalisation has the potential to increase GDP by €550 billion (or 1.2% per year) from 2016 to 2030 in nine European “digital front runner” economies, including Ireland. The Midlands Regional Enterprise Plan to 2024 identified ICT as an area of Smart Specialisation and Digitalisation for Midlands Region. Through the creation of an ICT Cluster specialising in Digital innovation and transformation the intention is for the Midlands to be Europe’s leading ICT cluster in Digital Innovation.

Aim:
This programme targets learner expertise and skills development within this rapidly developing and increasingly strategically important area. This programme will provide prospective students the techniques and skills require to analyse, design and implement digitalisation strategies for companies of varying levels of digital maturity by providing core skills in coding, data analysis and visualisation, artificial intelligence and digital project management. Though it’s Software Research Institute (SRI), TUS has ongoing formalised relationships with over 75 ICT companies. In recent years over €8M in industry focused funding has been secured focusing on Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Data Visualisation and Digital Transformation. Working with our industrial partners and with the active support and contribution of the newly formed Midlands ICT Digitalisation Cluster, the course development team have involved industry at all stages of the development process through technology brainstorming sessions, technical skills needs questionnaires. The result is an industry focused, engaging and real world relevant course.
