In a hyper-connected global environment, ideas and information flow freely. Technology-driven, information economies thrive by delivering inventive and relevant solutions that appeal to the humans who use them. Innovative, creative, and smart use of resources—both physical and digital—is fundamental to the global economy.

UCC's Masters programmes in this strand aim to link science, the arts, technology and business with entrepreneurism. Our tech-bio-commerce strengths are evident not only by the quality of our research output, but by deep engagement with global firms located in Cork, and by the many successful start-ups flourishing under UCC's incubation and tech-transfer projects.
