Immersive Software Engineering (ISE) computer science programme

Analog Devices, in collaboration with the University of Limerick (UL) and other prominent companies, are launching a new computer science programme called Immersive Software Engineering (ISE).

The programme comes in response to increased demand for developer talent and the rapid growth of the internet economy. ISE has been designed to 'revolutionise' the way computer science is taught, creating industry experienced software professionals to drive greater business impact.

As part of the research start-up aspect of this UL initiative, ADI will fund experimental development and research with the aim of developing new software processes and services.

“ADI is committed to increasing the impact of software advancements across industries and we are uniquely positioned to do this as the bridge between the physical and digital worlds,” said Vincent Roche, President and CEO of ADI. “We understand the vital need for programmes such as ISE in training software engineers of the future.”

Through the ISE programme, students will be able to take advantage of the resources offered at ADI Catalyst, a hands-on, incubator-like R&D facility in Limerick, Ireland, focused on forming new communities, creating living labs and developing breakthrough technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and sustainable applications.

The ADI Catalyst serves as a collaboration centre that uses a partnership approach to help customers address the challenges they face at an accelerated pace. It provides a unique setting for customers and research organisations to interact with ADI and solve problems together in a single collaborative environment.

Limerick is also home to Analog Devices’ European Research and Development Centre, which has a long-standing reputation for developing cutting-edge technology.

ISE consists of a three-year intensive undergraduate programme with an integrated fourth year at the master’s level. Industry residencies where students gain in-company experience will account for nearly half of the total programme, enabling them to acquire necessary skills in real-world settings alongside instructors. The first students are expected to enrol in the ISE programme in September 2022.

University of Limerick President, Professor Kerstin Mey said, “Analog Devices is one of our most committed, generous and long-term collaborators, and I am delighted to have the company join us in this exciting new initiative. We welcome the opportunity to work with ADI to reshape how tomorrow’s software engineers will be educated in such a significant way.”
