What that means...

Games Development

How are games for XBox 360 made? How can the same game run on a mobile phone and a

gaming PC? How can you make games for new controllers like the Kinect, Leap & Move? Can

a computer game be educational? At IT Tallaght, you'll learn how to write multi-platform

graphics code and much more.

Interactive Media Design

How does data (like census returns) turn into infographics on TV and in newspapers?

Software developers acquire, parse, filter, mine and visualise the data. The demand for

this skill is huge yet the role is so new that there isn't even an official name for it yet. At IT

Tallaght we teach the latest ways to develop interactive media applications for web and

mobile platforms.
