The employability skills of our students are embedded in the activities that they do as scientists during their degree.
Biological and Chemical Sciences
We take our students on field trips all over Europe. These trips offer students a great outlook to meet prospective employers.
Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences
We focus on a research environment in genetics, but also in entrepreneurship where students learn the concepts around building a company, product development and marketing.
Coming out of UCC with a chemistry degree, you are highly respected and wanted by many disciplines. You're seen by employers as numerate, a problem solver and having good practical skills.
With a mathematics degree, you have the skills to quickly adapt to any environment you are thrown into, and this is what employers appreciate based on feedback we receive.
There is an unlimited range of employers who value the skills such as data analysis, critical thinking and problem solving that you get with a physics degree.
Physics and Astrophysics
Cork is really rich in companies that employ our graduates. With work placement built into the programme, students are very well prepared for employment.
When our graduates go to industry, they work really hard, show a good work ethic and work well as a team. Employers regard our graduates as having the ability to be creative and very imaginative.
There are a whole range of skills, training and workshops that prepare our graduates for their employment year after their degree. Our graduates can work anywhere in the world.
UCC has a very long legacy when it comes to computer science, dating back to 1849 before a computer even existed.
CK402 has 11 degree programmes available from this CAO entry, and you don't make that choice until the end of Year 1.
Our teaching is a mixture of laboratory and field work, under instruction from world leading researchers.
Genetics underpins advances in many fields such as medicine, the human genome project, forensic science and biotechnology.
About one-third of the course marks in your Chemistry degree is practical work - observing and understanding what you're doing.
Mathematics is the language of science, seeking to logically understand structures and patterns which either exist in reality or as abstract concepts.
Physics provides a framework to understand the processes, forces and structure of nature.
A joint UCC/MTU degree, which combines fundamental physics with practical and modern industrial training.
Modules in this degree programme are evenly split between Statistics/Mathematics and Computer Science.
Data Science and Analytics
Year 3 provides a substantial work placement, providing students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge in an agricultural environment.
Nutritional science is rooted in chemistry, biology and the study of behaviors and social factors related to food choices.
A course with a strong emphasis on laboratory practicals and projects, taught by world-leading researchers in unique facilities.
Our four degrees in engineering are fully accredited, recognised worldwide and very important if you travel abroad for work.
A degree in architecture is the first step towards becoming a registered architect.
