CCT College Dublin currently has two Faculties of education and training, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Faculty, and the Faculty of Business.
About the ICT Faculty
The Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is the oldest in the College, and has evolved and grown exponentially since CCT was established in 2005. The range of full-time, part-time, professional, and corporate programmes is very diverse, and is provided at all levels from foundation to Postgraduate Masters level 9 in Computing, Software Development, Networking and Cybersecurity, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.
The ICT Faculty provides full and part time fee paying programmes, but facilitates a number of courses, which are accessed free of charge for eligible students. CCT College Dublin provides programmes under such Irish government initiatives and organisations as Springboard+ and the Human Capital Initiative (HCI). CCT also works closely with secondary schools around Ireland to give free access to certified short-term Computing programmes for second-level students.
All ICT programmes are innovatively developed with a practical, industry relevant focus. An integral part of our education and training provision, is a personal and professional development stream, running parallel to academic studies. This embodies the ethos and spirit of CCT, to furnish students with opportunities to enhance and improve personal development and job readiness skills. The College also affords the opportunity for full time students to complete globally recognised ICT industry certification skills based courses in tandem with academic programmes.
All faculties at CCT are learner oriented, and driven by a passion for teaching and learning. The ICT Faculty in particular is dedicated to research and development in the area of enhancement and innovation within ICT teaching. CCT has been part of the ICEP (International Conference on Engaging Pedagogy) initiative, in partnership with other Irish higher education institutions. The ICT Faculty has also spearheaded the Irish500 Supercomputer List: the promotion, advocacy, and advancement of High Performance Computing (HPC) on the island of Ireland. The ICT Faculty is also committed to the provision of extra-curricular ideas and activities, such as Programming competitions, demonstration of latest technologies, industry visits, the ICT link to music, and much more.
About the Business Faculty
Due to strong national demand among students for business related programmes and skills in tandem with Computing, and ICT Management, the Faculty of Business was established at CCT in early 2012, and has developed and grown exponentially since. The department currently offers a diverse range of full-time, part-time, professional, and corporate programmes across an array of levels and includes a Level 8 BA (Hons) in Business and an MA in International Business.
Our Business Faculty has also designed a number of industry aligned part time professional programmes in Accounts and Payroll, Project Management and Digital Marketing.
Both faculties at CCT work closely together, to develop Business and ICT programmes reflecting how interrelated the two fields are. A particular focus of the Business department is the Management of Technology in Business, Strategic Management for ICT, Accounting & Finance, and Computerised Accounting, Entrepreneurship, and Digital Marketing.
