Some universities offer postgraduate conversion courses. If someone
has an MSc or an MA, they can go to a two or three semester studies
program and get a diploma in another field. UCD and NUIM offer courses
in IT. I was asked to assess if there is a significant difference
between the two:
I have read the curriculum of both, but I figured I'd also ask here,
since many of you might know more details, maybe know the universities
Some differences I noticed are:
- UCD hosts some of the subjects outside the campus, at IPA.
- some of the UCD courses focuses on particular technologies, e.g.
systems management consists of things like Windows upgrades and AD
- Networking basics, and algorithms (as a separate subject) look
absent from the UCD curriculum
There are probably lots of other factors that you can't see from
looking at the online information.
Would you recommend any of the two courses over the other, and why?
(or why not?)
