What you will study
The BSc Advanced Therapeutic Technologies programme will provide an excellent student experience that equips graduates with the technical and transversal competencies to become future leaders in healthcare innovation and technology. The programme has been designed to address both the current and future skills needs of the (bio) pharmaceutical and related industries as identified in national and international skills reports. The curriculum draws upon cutting-edge developments across scientific disciplines, including genetics and genomics, computational biology, data analytics, drug delivery, pharmacology, immunology and connected health.
The programme is designed to ensure that graduates can apply the knowledge and skills they gain in the real world to design, create and implement innovative solutions to complex healthcare problems. Employability is embedded throughout the programme and students develop transversal skills through the professional formation modules as well as competencies in project management, leadership and management, enterprise and innovation, and regulatory science. Employability is further enhanced by completion of a longitudinal pharma industry placement of eight months in Year 3, either within or outside Ireland.
The programme incorporates active learning techniques with a mix of team-based and individual-focused projects and a significant practical focus with a view to ensuring workplace readiness.
The programme is four years in total, leading to the award of Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Advanced Therapeutic Technologies.
