Department of Science & Health

Ian McCarthy - Bachelor of Science (Honours) Sports Rehabilitation & Athletic Therapy, GSR, CSCS, CKTP.  
 
Deciding on which third level course and college you wish to attend is confusing and daunting at the best of times. My decision to undertake the Sports Rehabilitation & Athletic Therapy Degree at IT Carlow was no exception.  However, a quick refection on my present position justifies it as one of the best decisions I have made to date.  Since graduating, I have spent over 18 months working in the esteemed Stanford University Sports Medicine department, cofounded Stanford’s “International Affiliate Clinical Training Program”, been accepted to one of the world’s most prestigious osteopathic schools and obtained employment in a successful sports injury clinic in London.  One thing is for certain though, none of the aforementioned “successes” would not have been possible without the knowledge, skills and contacts I made during my 4 years at IT Carlow......

Department of Computing & Networking

Keith Cully- Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computer Games Development
 
Was the course useful? Yes
How did it help you? Throughout the course I gained a variety of skills which are useful in both work and life in general. The course taught me not just how to develop games, but how to program, design software, work effectively as part a team and convey ideas effectively, even when not all parties speak the same language. The focus on project work helped me to develop my time management abilities and along with creating an extensive portfolio, it gave me the experience to adapt to any development team/environment. This has led to me attaining a great career in one of the best work environments on the planet.....

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Biosciences with Biopharmaceuticals from IT Carlow in 2011. Subsequently, I completed a 3 month work placement with Teagasc at Oak Park working as a research assistant. This provided a good foundation for future research.

My research project is part of a collaboration between Dr Dina Brazil, from the Biotechnology and Molecular Environmental Science Group and Dr Thomaé Kakouli-Duarte, from the Molecular Ecology and Nematode Research Group, both members of EnviroCORE....
