What Our Students Say
Blátnaid Gallagher | MSc:AgInnovation: Agricultural Innovation & Entrepreneurship
In the modern day, we are never far from a problem; from daily problems on a farm, to the bigger problems we face as humanity. But when problems like this exist and you feel, see and live them, what can be done? Well, we can innovate to solve them. A daunting task, and one I didn’t know how to even start, until I spotted the AgInnovation MSc course at National University of Ireland (NUI), Galway – and so, my journey began.The AgInnovation (agricultural innovation and entrepreneurship) Masters of Science (MSc) at NUI Galway puts a great perspective on what is needed to take a concept, a dream, an idea or an ambition, and bring it to fruition.
