Course description

Digitalisation of Business and Industrial processes is a major driver for the Irish economy in a bid to yield a fully circular, net-carbon neutral and digital economy by 2050.

In collaboration with industry partners and the Confirm research centre a strong demand for process digitalisation and data analytics in Business and Industry was identified.  The Professional Diploma in Digitalisation of Business & Industry is industry led in conjunction with an Industry Expert Working Group to meet this demand.

This programme will equip graduates with the competencies to act as a ‘Digital Support’ to operate within an enterprise.  These competencies will allow the graduate to focus on the integration of systems, analysis of key data and the demonstration of opportunities and added value for the business through process digitalisation.

The delivery of the programme is through mainly online blended learning, and self-directed study, and focuses on the undertaking of a set of Artificial Intelligence related modules.

It will be delivered primarily via on-line lectures, supported with tutorials and assignments and if necessary some on-campus workshops. Formative assessment will be based on assignments and project work with a focus on acquiring knowledge and skills, with opportunity for creativity and innovation. Summative assessment will typically be continuous assessment and /or exam based except for the dissertation which will be report and presentation based.
