    There is only one reason to select the university as this university was a National university of Ireland and also it had a best reviews for the business program and the research project.

    Course Curriculum :

    The University added this course 1st time so we are the 1st batch, major changes have been recommended in the course subjects which we though should be changed and also the 2nd semester is best for the business people and the research project is major and the amazing part wherin they tie up with the international companies and work on their problem statement all alone and get the exposure of the corporate life while studying itself.

    NUI Galway is a great university in terms of highly educated faculty, infrastructure and quality education. I selected to study at NUI Galway due to good quality of education, short term course of 9 months with NFQ level 9 and interesting subjects in the curriculum.

    Course Curriculum :

    The Curriculum for my course was very wide, we got to learn about the research side of things to industrial side of things. Major learning takes place in the final project as we have to construct our thesis over the whole course duration, many students also work in the same field as their final project's field. As for industrial exposure, we visited a wind farm which demonstrated wind turbines on a closer perspective.
