ICHEC's partnership with Opel Ireland (General Motors)

Posted on 3 July 2014

ICHEC has been working with Opel Ireland and its parent company General Motors (GM) to develop a high performance computing (HPC) system administration course which starts in early August 2014. The 30 ECTS credits course is a stream of the Diploma in Applied Science graduate programme offered under the Higher Education Authority's (HEA) Springboard initiative. Applicants are expected to have a bachelors degree in the area of computing and information technology and must take part in an interview process. Students accepted into the course will take modules taught by ICHEC staff and participate in an industry placement with General Motors who are actively recruiting staff to support their internal HPC infrastructure.

Further information about the course, including eligibility criteria and online application, is available at:
