Global Fellowships Programme

ISE team members with AWS

Transform computer science education and research

The Immersive Software Engineering (ISE) Global Fellowship Programme is an exciting collaboration between the University of Limerick (UL) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). This long-term fellowship programme will help transform computer science education and research by attracting leaders at all career levels from industry and academia to UL’s pioneering new course.

The ISE global fellowships is a highly competitive and prestigious software engineering award. UL will appoint Junior and Senior Fellows representing a variety of backgrounds, genders, expertise, and geographies, and each Fellow will have the chance to spend between three weeks and six months inspiring ISE’s students, supporting ISE’s researchers, and engaging ISE’s growing coalition of industry partners.

“The Global Fellows programme will bring together pioneering teaching and research with world-class thought leaders and practitioners to help develop tomorrow’s technology leaders and innovators. With a focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Fellows will be drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds, skill sets, life experiences and global locations.”
