UCD Science Degree Courses
If you have a fascination with natural phenomena and find yourself constantly asking “why?” and “how?”, then you’re well on your way to being a scientist. With an exciting and diverse range of subjects, Science at UCD unfolds a universe of career opportunities for students who have an enquiring mind, an ability to solve problems and a desire to explore new worlds.
Why UCD Science?
There is a wide range of career opportunities available to Science graduates. UCD Science graduates are skilled at analysing data, writing reports and solving problems, and are trained to use their own initiative, all qualities that companies are looking for in employees. These skills can be transferred to businesses ranging from biotechnology, conservation and wildlife to IT, finance and forensics.
Many graduates continue their studies to masters or doctoral degree level. Leading UCD institutes and research centres include the UCD Conway Institute, UCD Earth Institute and UCD CASL (Complex & Adaptive Systems Laboratory). UCD is also home to NovaUCD, the Innovation and Technology Transfer Centre. Notable successes include the establishment of a range of spin-off companies including Changing Worlds and Lightwave Technologies.
