The NCI Computing Project Showcase is an exciting day on campus where the college is turned into an exhibition space for students to present their projects.

The Computing Project Showcase is an annual event which gives final-year students the opportunity to display their work and the skills they have learned as part of their degree to potential employees.
The event usually takes place on campus at National College of Ireland with friends and family and our students invited to attend along with any member of the public who has an interest in this area. However, a week-long virtual event took place in 2021 with a dedicated website hosting details of each project available along with videos created by students explaining their work and the technologies they incorporated.
