The College of Computing Technology (CCT) is one of Ireland's leading internationally accredited independent colleges. CCT is a specialist provider of Computing, ICT, and Business programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The decision to study abroad - and your choice of country, city, and educational institution - is one of the most important you will make. CCT's programmes provide the highest quality education, within an interactive, supportive, caring, and dynamic learning environment.
Established in 2005, CCT is ideally located on Westmoreland Street in the very heart of Dublin city centre - Ireland's capital city. CCT's campus is conveniently situated on all public transport routes servicing the city and greater Dublin area, including bus, train and light rail. This makes the College easily accessible, and with most international college students who travel to study in Dublin living in the city centre, CCT is often within walking distance from student accommodation.
Our staff are carefully selected not only for their passion, excellence and commitment to high quality teaching and learning, but for their understanding of the challenges that exist for international students studying a higher education programme through English. With small class sizes, CCT affords a personal touch in a caring environment, enabling staff and students to work closely together. At CCT we recognise that higher education is not just about your academic development, but also your personal and professional development. This is a key part of our ethos in delivering our programmes of learning.
The College's programmes are industry-aligned and relevant. Common streams through each of our programmes include professional and personal development modules, study- skills advice, applied technology projects (group and individual) tailored to real-life industry-reported issues. Programmes also provide for additional globally-recognised industry certified qualifications. This is all very important for your future employability. And thanks to our dynamic Careers Advisory service , we work to ensure that your academic and career progression is part of our success as an educational institution - CCT is very proud of an excellent employment rate for graduates.
