Réamhrá

Tá sé mar aidhm ag an MSc i nGnó agus i dTeicneolaíocht an Eolais mic léinn a ullmhú le bheith ag obair mar theicneolaithe, bainisteoirí, oideachasóirí, fiontraithe agus nuálaithe — róil a bhfuil an-tóir orthu i ngeilleagar faisnéise an lae inniu.

Cuirtear an clár seo ar fáil de réir éilimh agus trí mheán na Gaeilge.

The MSc i nGnó agus i dTeicneolaíocht an Eolais is designed to produce the kind of digital business technologists, managers, educators, entrepreneurs and innovators in great demand in today’s information economy.

This programme is run subject to demand and is delivered through the medium of Irish.

“I ndiaidh dom bunchéim a bhaint amach i dteangacha, bhí sé mar sprioc agam obair san earnáil ghnó ach gan taithí ar bith agam ar a leithéid. Ba dheis iontach an MSc le tuiscint a fháil ar réimse leathan ábhar gnó agus ar theicneolaíocht an eolais. Anois tá mé ag obair i gcomhairleacht teicneolaíochta agus is cinnte gan an cháilíocht sin agus an taithí a fuair mé ar an chúrsa nach mbeadh an post seo faighte agam.” 

 

“After I completed my undergraduate degree in languages, my goal was to work in the business sector but I hadn’t the necessary experience. The MSc i nGnó agus i dTeicneolaíocht an Eolais programme was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain a better understanding of a wide range of business and information technology subjects. I am now working in technology consultancy and without this qualification and the experience I gained by doing this course, I wouldn’t have been offered a post like this.”

GA: Tá an clár thuas á thairiscint go hiomlán ar líne don bhliain acadúil 2020-2021. Déanfar na modúil uile a sholáthar ar ardáin ar líne trí mheascán léachtaí (idir bheo agus taifeadta), plé agus fóraim ar líne, chomh maith le measúnachtaí aonair agus grúpa. Déanfar an teagasc ar líne ar ardán foghlama DCU, LOOP, mar aon le háiseanna eile ar nós Zoom a úsáid. 

Chun gur féidir leo bheith rannpháirteach mar is cuí sa chlár, ní mór do mhic léinn ríomhaire deisce nó glúine chomh maith le nasc idirlín seasmhach a bheith acu.

Sa chás go dtiocfaidh athrú ar na srianta i dtaca le teagasc ar champas, faoi réir comhairle um shláinte phoiblí, faoi thús Sheimeastar 2 2020-2021, tharlódh sé go bhféadfaí gnéithe roghnacha áirithe den chlár a bheith ar champas nó trí mhodh cumaisc ina mbeadh meascán de chur chuige ar champas agus ar líne. Bheadh mic léinn nach bhféadfadh freastal ar ghníomhaíochtaí ar champas in ann an clár a chríochnú go hiomlán ar líne, áfach.

Is iad na baill foirne ardcháilithe, ardoilte chéanna a mhúineann modúil an chláir de ghnáth a dhéanfaidh an clár ar líne a sholáthar. Tabharfaidh léachtóirí aiseolas duit ar do chuid measúnachtaí agus beidh tú in ann do chuid oibre a phlé leo trí mheán an rphoist nó físghlaonna Zoom.

Tá na coinníollacha thuas i bhfeidhm faoi réir comhairle um shláinte phoiblí ón rialtas maidir leis na srianta a bhaineann le scaradh sóisialta, agus d’fhéadfadh go leasófaí nó go n-oiriúnófaí amach anseo iad.

EN: This programme is being offered fully online for the 2020-2021 academic year. All modules will be delivered in online environments, through a combination of live and recorded lectures, online discussions and forums, as well as individual and group assignments. Teaching will be facilitated through DCU’s online learning environment, LOOP, the Zoom video platform, and other tools.

In order to participate in the programme, students are required to have access to a desktop or laptop computer and a reliable internet connection.

Subject to public health advice, should the restrictions around on-campus delivery of teaching change by Semester 2 2020/2021, some optional components of the programme could take place on campus or in a blended mode combining in-class and online engagement. However, students who are unable to join on-campus activity will be able to complete their degree fully online.

The online programme is delivered by the same highly qualified and experienced staff who traditionally delivered the modules on campus. Lecturers will provide feedback on your assignments and you will have access to staff via email or Zoom video calls to discuss your work. 

The above conditions are subject to government and public health advice with regard to restrictions and social distancing measures and may be modified or adapted as the situation changes.

Clár an chúrsa:

Thar tréimhse dhá bhliain, tugann mic léinn pháirtaimseartha faoi mhodúil i réimse topaicí a bhaineann leis an ngnó digiteach, bainistíocht agus ceannaireacht, agus cúrsaí straitéise agus margaíochta, chomh maith le tionscadal nó tráchtas sa taighde feidhmeach. Dearadh gach ceann de na modúil ar mhaithe le freastal ar threochtaí atá ag teacht chun cinn i saol na hoibre sa lá atá inniu ann.

Sna gnéithe den chúrsa a bhaineann leis an ngnó digiteach, líonraí agus na meáin, foghlaimeoidh mic léinn eolas agus scileanna teicniúla a chuirfidh ar a gcumas ábhar a chruthú agus cumarsáid a dhéanamh ar ardáin dhigiteacha, idir na cinn atá coitianta agus cinn atá ag teacht chun cinn.  Forbróidh mic léinn tuiscint phraiticiúil ar an dea-chleachtas i ndearadh gréasáin, inúsáidteacht suíomhanna gréasáin, eispéireas an úsáideora agus feachtais agus tionscadail ríomhthráchtála. 

Trí na modúil taighde agus bhainistíochta, díreofar ar na tuiscintí a theastaíonn i ngairmeacha bainistíochta agus ceannaireachta. Forbróidh mic léinn scileanna boga agus tras-scileanna, chomh maith le tuiscintí ar an tionchar a imríonn bunachair sonraí, an t-uathoibriú agus an mheaisínfhoghlaim ar chleachtais thraidisiúnta bhainistíochta.

Ar deireadh, beidh deis ag mic léinn tarraingt ar an taithí ghairmiúil, acadúil nó phearsanta atá acu féin, agus tabhairt faoi thionscadal taighde agus tráchtas a bhaineann lena sainréimsí spéise féin. Déanfar an obair seo faoi stiúir ball den fhoireann acadúil a bhfuil ardchailíochtaí agus taithí aige/aici.

Tabharfaidh na tascanna eile a dhéanfar i rith na bliana deis do mhic léinn a gcuid taighde, machnaimh agus saineolais a chur i bhfeidhm agus iad ag obair ar thionscadail shuimiúla a bhaineann lena gcúlraí agus réimsí spéise féin. Físeán faoin Ghaeilge

Programme

Over two years, part-time students undertake modules in a range of topics related to digital business, management and leadership, strategy and marketing, in addition to an applied research project or dissertation. All modules have been carefully designed to cater for emerging trends in the workplace.

The digital business, media and networks elements of the course provide students with technical knowledge and skills to author and communicate using common and emerging digital platforms. Students will develop a practical understanding for best practice in web design, web usability, user experience and e-commerce campaigns and projects. 

Building on this, the management and research modules equip students with the knowledge for successful management and leadership careers. Students will develop soft and transversal skills, while appreciating how databases, automation and machine learning impact traditional management practice.

Finally, students will be able to focus on a specific area of research for their thesis, drawing on professional, academic or personal experience. Each student is assigned a highly qualified and experienced member of the academic faculty to supervise them through this process. 

All assignments have been developed so as to allow for students to put research, reflection and expertise to work on interesting projects related to their own backgrounds and areas of interest.
