Professor Pádraig Cunningham
School of Computer Science


Computer Science in UCD is undergoing a period of growth and development because of the burgeoning ICT sector and the demand for graduates with computing skills. ICT is revolutionising travel, agriculture, sport and entertainment so there is a demand for Computer Science graduates across all sectors of society.

UCD Computer Science is committed to excellence research and teaching to provide the skills and innovations to support the demands for ICT skills. We are extending our teaching programmes at undergraduate and taught graduate levels in order to meet this increased demand. These programmes are available to Irish and European students and are attracting students from outside the EU, particularly from Asia.

Teaching on these programmes is informed by our research activities in data science, computer networking and software engineering with over 100 postdocs and PhD students working in our school. We are committed to ensuring that our teaching programmes present the most up to date developments across Computer Science.
