Cool Questions

Yes this is one of those threads where I ask questions that you guys have probably answered 100000 times and for that I apologise.

Anywho, I was just wondering if someone could tell me which of the following courses would have me best prepared for a job in programming in the gaming industry:

http://www.tcd.ie/courses/undergradu...urse.php?id=66 (I know this one has a language with it and thats something I'd be interested in)

http://www.ucc.ie/en/ck401/

http://www2.ul.ie/web/WWW/Services/M...%20Development

http://www2.ul.ie/web/WWW/Services/M...uter%20Systems

http://www.gamedevelopers.ie/courses...php?article=27

Most of them seem geared towards software engineering or is that practically the same thing?

Last question a lot of job openings I see have experience listed as a requirement, where are you meant to get experience if they only want people with it

Any help is very much appreciated.

Computer Science is not the same as Software Engineering although companies don't mind degrees in either generally.

Look for Graduate or Junior jobs. If they don't exist, apply anyway as sometimes they are not listed.

I know nothing about the Universities that you have listed although UCC and GDI look decent from face value.
