Mechanical Engineering

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Mechanical engineering is the manufacturing of products that move. It encompasses the entire production process, from drafting an idea for an item, to understanding the mechanics necessary to make the item work, to the production of the completed item, to incorporating that item into larger systems.

Ireland lately implemented a law, which mandates all students attending university education to apply for government loans to allow them achieve their higher academic dreams. First official language is Irish, also known as Irish Gaelic, but English (the second official language) is more widely used. The national capital is Dublin.

Masters in Mechanical Engineering in Galway in Ireland. Big Challenges being addressed by this programme – motivation. The programme is designed to meet the international demand for 90 ECTS Level 9 qualification in Mechanical Engineering. Programme objectives & purpose The MSc is a 12-month, 90 ECTS Level 9 Masters in Mechanical Engineering, which will take engineering (BE) and closely-related graduates to an advanced level of mechanical engineering capability, focusing on advanced design, analysis, materials and manufacture via state-of-the-art technology. This course offers a broad range of advanced engineering modules, including advanced applied mathematics and advanced computational modelling, as well as industry-specific advanced modules in manufacturing technology, offshore engineering, energy and medical device development and materials. A substantial 12-month research thesis allows the students to implement new research skills developed within a specially-designed module on engineering research methods, including publication of the research findings. Each MSc project focuses on a current ‘hot topic’ in mechanical engineering industry and is carried out in collaboration with industry partners. What’s special about CoEI/National University Ireland Galway in this area: The CoEI have a range of specialist level 9 programmers in multiple disciplines of Engineering and Information Technology, that follow on from the level 8 (B.E.) programmes. The college has a long tradition of producing highly skilled mechanical engineering graduates who achieve hugely successful careers in industry, research and academia at an international level. At NUI Galway, we have a considerable range of state-of-the art facilities and technical expertise for engineering research. We also are located at the heart of one of Europe’s medical device industry hubs, with over 8,300 medtech employees in Galway, ranging from start-up companies up to the numerous multinational medical device companies. NUI Galway has undoubtedly been part of establishment and continued growth of this medtech R&D and manufacturing hub. Programme Structure This 90 ECTS programme includes a substantial 30 ECTS research project, complemented by 60 ECTS of modules (including 10 ECTS of optional modules). Programme Content The research project is directly supervised by a member of academic staff for the full 12-month period on a selected industry or research topic and is assessed on the basis of a written thesis. The modules focus on advanced engineering research methods and technology, where students will combine design, computational methods and modelling, as well as experimental testing and prototyping activities, utilizing state-of-the-art research facilities in the New Engineering Building in NUI Galway. Over two semesters, students will take a total of 10 mandatory advanced modules in mechanics, materials, applied mathematics for engineering and research methods. In addition, students will choose 2 further modules from a choice of 9 specialist modules including turbomachines, offshore engineering and advanced energy systems. Opportunity for number of Industrial & Research internships: The topics for the 30 ECTS research thesis are heavily industry and research focused, building on the highly successful relationship that the Discipline of Mechanical Engineering has with local, national and international engineering companies, and on the diverse range of advanced research activities of the Mechanical Engineering academic staff. Scholarships At NUI Galway, we are keen to ensure that the brightest and most committed students progress to postgraduate study.
