Programme Aim

The Programme aims to equip established and aspiring Architects with:

  • An informed, common, industry-aligned understanding of their role
  • A set of frameworks, approaches and tools for executing Architecture tasks
  • A knowledge base of current best Architectural practice and experience
  • Ability to Communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders
  • The capacity to understand technology initiatives from a broad Business Perspective
  • Be equipped to make strategic technical decisions
  • Obtain internationally certified and validated academic recognition


Programme Outline
The programme will have seven modules including a major research project as follows:
  1. IT Architecture Design
  2. IT Environment
  3. Business Technology Strategy
  4. Human Skills for the IT Architect
  5. IT Architecture Quality Attributes
  6. IT Architecture in Practice
  7. Research Methods

The programme will be delivered part-time over two years with lectures one night per week.  Every 3/4 weeks it will be necessary to hold lectures twice in that week.

Flexible Delivery
The programme will start with a 3 day workshop which will involve all participants being physically present.  This is seen as important to facilitate networking, experience sharing and group learning.
We understand that there is a strong awareness of the constraints on architects’ time, particularly time spent off-site. It is expected that lectures will be delivered two evenings per week.  There will also be a requirement to attend one on-campus day at the end of each semester. Please check the ‘Further information’ document for more information.
Lectures will be streamed live from TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus) and will be available for download and offline viewing.  The award structure will place greater emphasis on continuous assessment, practical and project work rather than on formal examinations.  In fact there are only 2 modules that carry an actual exam.

Eligibility Criteria
Prospective participants must either (a) be serving in the role of software architect, or (b) be aspiring to move into such a role. All participants must have substantial experience of IT software and systems development and implementation in team and technical leading roles. They must also have current competence to interact with development teams at a deep technical (i.e. specification and coding) level.
Applicants should have a primary degree (Level 8) in Computer Science or a cognate/science discipline or a degree with a high level of mathematics. Those who do not meet this requirement will be considered on their merits if they can show a particular interest or aptitude for this area of work or if they have industry experience and training which shows evidence that their education and work experience is sufficient to meet the education needs of the programme and recruitment policies of the College.

Certification
Successful completion of this two year programme will result in the award of the officially named programme  MSc in Applied IT Architecture.  This is what will be listed on the parchment.
Participants will become registered students of TU Dublin (Tallaght Campus) and be awarded free membership of IASA.
