MSc (Technology Management)


NFQ Level 9, Major Award

(Joint Degree between University College Cork and the University of Galway)

The MSc in Technology Management is a a part-time distance education programme running over 24 months from the date of first registration for the programme.

The programme is delivered part-time over four semesters on a distance-learning basis and incorporates a combination of self-instructional printed materials (i.e. student guide, printed course modules), in addition to regular seminars and tutorials, which are complementary to the programme. These will be supported by a web-based, online learning tool, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Students will take a total of 8 core modules of 5 credits each, 1 core 10 credit module and 1 elective modules of 10 credits, totalling 60 credits, over 4 semesters in two academic years. Due to the part-time nature of the programme with the studies spread over 2 academic years, the grouping of modules in each semester will vary according to the specified enrolment cycles and overall organisation of the programme by the co-ordinating University (the University of Galway). In addition, students will also undertake a research dissertation module of one year (3 semesters) duration in the second academic year of studies, with the value of 30 credits.
