Staff in Atlantic Technological University (ATU) are celebrating winning a top accolade in The Education Awards 2022, the “Best Masters Programme” award, for its two-year Master of Science in Design and Innovation programme.
Delivered from the ATU Galway campus, the part-time multidisciplinary course was first offered two years ago.
The MSc in Design and Innovation programme is designed for people from varied disciplines who want to develop their innovation, design, management and leadership skills, while in full or part-time employment in industry, services and public bodies.
Programme Chair Dr Gabriel J Costello explains:“To meet the region’s innovation needs, a cross-functional team was established led by the School of Engineering in collaboration with the Centre for Creative Arts and Media (CCAM) and the School of Business, ATU. Ideas and opinions were sourced locally and nationally from indigenous and multinational businesses in the MedTech, ICT and Manufacturing sectors. Valuable input was received from the Department of Product Development and Transformation in the IDA”.
The current participants who will graduate this year are professionals working in MedTech, Pharma, Refrigeration, Furniture Design, Civil Engineering, Manufacturing and Education sectors.
