Big Increase in Demand for Computing Places


There has been some noise in the media recently about a short-fall in skilled Computing graduates. Supply has fallen behind demand, and the IT industry seems to be immune to the recession. As a consequence we in DCU have noticed an increase in demand for places on our Computing programs. As the graph illustrates the pressure on places for our undergraduate degree programs seems to be climbing back up to near its peak as it was before the infamous dot-com bust. This demand has accelerated recently with a very noticeable late surge in response to the CAO change-of-mind process this year.
