I did an undergrad in CS (Mathematical and Computing Science, UCG) so I
can't speak to the usefulness or otherwise of post-grad courses.
However, both of the colleges I attended (and, unfortunately, still
attend... motivation is a sneaky and slippery devil making it tough to
find) have postgrad courses:
Department of Computer Science, UCD:
- Higher Diploma in Computer Science
- H.Dip/M.Sc Computational Science
My Ph.D. supervisor runs this course and I'd be happy to put you in
contact with him. I know a couple of people who did the H.Dip. is CS
and I can put you in contact with them if you'd like.
As for UCG (or NUI, Galway as it is now known):
- MSc - Communications Systems Theory (Dept. of Maths -
The Department of Information Technology has a few courses too:
Information Hiding Laboratory,
Department of Computer Science,
University College Dublin,
Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland
