NUI Galway has launched a new educational programme that will prepare students to deal with the complexity and uncertainty of life and the future world of work.

Designing Futures has been developed to enhance the employability of NUI Galway graduates by offering additional practical and creative teaching, learning and skills development alongside traditional degree studies.

More than 1,500 students are taking part in design thinking programmes each year, with more than 300 students attending new transdisciplinary modules in 2021/22.

Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, T.D., said: “Designing Futures is a really exciting and dynamic programme which aims to deliver a unique mix of skills coaching, trans-disciplinary modules and curriculum reform all underpinned by technology.

The programme aims to -

  • Promote greater student engagement with civic society, community and enterprise, while expanding their education and preparedness for life and a career.
  • Empower students to design personalised skills development pathways and to ensure graduates transversal skills achievements are recognised alongside their degree.
  • Enhance NUI Galway and Ireland’s position as a leader in innovative, student-centred and enterprise-engaged education in Europe and internationally.
