"The Masters of Applied Science at NUI Galway was an extremely worthwhile course, both personally and professionally. The fact that I was completing a Masters and undertaking my thesis helped me to get my current job in Ericsson. The course has provided me with a better structured framework for analysing situations and reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of
systems, which is vital in my work."
Boston Scientific Corporation
"Through the Masters in Applied Science at NUI Galway I developed a wide range of new skills and increased my knowledge of the subject areas covered by my thesis. My critical thinking, analytical and writing skills improved greatly on completion of this course and have helped me in the independent research I have completed since graduating."

"The Masters of Applied Science at NUI Galway was a very challenging, but worthwhile experience. The topics that I chose to study were new to me and this meant that it was a steep learning curve, but the experience has given me more confidence and I’ve developed many new and useful skills. Without the qualification I gained from the Masters I would not have secured my current job."

"I would recommend my course to others because it is designed in such a way that each student can tailor the course to suit their needs. Rather than all subjects being mandatory, the majority of the modules are optional and so each student can select the modules that are most applicable to their future career paths.
I would recommend NUI Galway because I think it is a lovely campus and it is clear that a lot of investment has and is currently being put into upgrading the facilities so that they match the standard of education being delivered.
I found all of my lecturers to be very approachable and welcoming anytime I knocked on their doors. I think when you are spending a large sum of money on a postgraduate course it is important to know that you will have access to the academic staff.
I commenced employment, after my course ended, with a new start-up company that recently licensed an innovative wastewater technology. My programme director actually passed on my CV to the comany! Based on my performance during the Masters she was able to vouch for my work ethic and this endorsement, along with my results, helped me secure the job."
"I would highly recommend the Masters of Applied Science (Enterprise Systems) to other students as it offers a broad range of modules that are applicable in the workplace across many industries in Ireland. The module choice allows the student to tailor the course to the student’s needs or to the requirements of a particular industry. In particular, modules such as Lean Systems, Business Analytics, Operations Management and Quality Management provide the tools necessary for roles across various industries in Ireland."
