Description

The student will be placed in a suitable organisation and should be integrated into the IS environment as much as possible. The placement may begin in April and must be completed by the end of August. A student would be expected to spend at least 3 months in industry. The course is of 12 months duration and awards will not be granted until the Autumn examination board meeting. This is necessary because a student will not be eligible for an award until an industrial placement has been successfully
completed.
The institute has currently in place links with Universities in France, Spain, Belgium and Portugal that has facilitated the placement of students within these countries. These take the form of either a period of working in industry or undertaking an extensive research project in the University. Such placements/research is supervised by lecturers in the various universities with the proviso that all work undertaken will be agreed by IT Sligo in advance. This arrangement is reciprocal and foreign students attend IT Sligo on a similar basis.
Where it is not possible to find a placement for a student consideration will be given to that student undertaking a research project in IT Sligo.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

The students will be exposed to and experience a live ICT working environment.

2.

The student will be given the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations.

Module Assessment Strategies

The placement/project is assessed only on a pass/fail basis. To be awarded the Ordinary Degree in Computing a
student must pass the placement in addition to the taught modules, but no marks will be awarded and it will not be counted towards the level of the award.

Students will be assessed on the basis of visits by industrial tutors, a diary of work kept by the student and on a report submitted by a senior member from the organisation in which the student is placed.

Students will be assessed on a Final Presentation on completion of the placement.
