WebInnovate is 12-month part-time programme which develops talent for Ireland's high-growth Internet & digital technology sectors, and offering an International BSc (Honours) in Digital Technology, Design and Innovation (Level 8) accredited by Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT).

It’s a blended programme, mixing online and on campus: workshops and other meetings are on-campus and live online. All on-campus lectures are recorded, so you can catch up with anything you miss.

Proud track record
Within six months, 73% of those who completed the Springboard WebElevate programme in March 2013 had returned to the workplace, and of these 64.5% were in paid employment or had established their own business.
Build your digital toolkit
The WebInnovate programme offers three streams, stemming from both Web and Mobile areas:
- Managers and Marketers
- Designers and Web Developers
Here’s why we’ll call you ‘industry-ready’
A key part of the programme is challenge-based learning, where participants will either generate and develop their own digital product or service innovation, or work on developing digital innovations for industry partners. You’ll be mentored by an expert from the digital industries. With your own digital product or an industry partner, you’ll work on projects some of which will go to market. You’ll graduate with a portfolio of live projects.
