This Masters programme allows students to specialise in the widely established area of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering or to widen their knowledge from their undergraduate studies. It enables graduates to apply their knowledge using computer-based technology to solve mechanical and manufacturing engineering problems. This programme introduces the use of advanced Computer Aided Engineering tools and, by experiencing these advanced techniques and software, the graduate will gain a vital edge. It allows the candidate to keep up with the rapidly changing manufacturing and design sectors. In addition, students can opt for a specialist Major in Sustainable Systems/Energy or Biomedical Engineering.
Who is eligible?
To apply for this programme candidates must have an Honours degree in Mechanical and/or Manufacturing Engineering. Candidates whose first language is not English will be required to submit evidence of an English Language qualification. For more information on entry requirements please consult our website.
Choice of Majors
Sustainable Systems/Energy - There is a growing international market for Engineers in sustainable energy and development, eco-innovation, resource efficiency and cleantech sectors. There are lots of career opportunities in the growing fields of Energy/Renewable Energy (wind, wave, solar, biomass etc.); a national priority area for Ireland.
Biomedical Engineering - This discipline integrates the necessary aspects of biology and medicine with the technical engineering aspects required to engineer medical devices. The world of medicine is evolving and expanding rapidly, with new treatments and new diseases appearing all the time. As Ireland is a major player in Bioengineering, this Major provides graduates with specialisms required by industry.
The MEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering is designed to be completed in one calendar year of full-time study. It consists of two (full-time) taught semesters, followed by a practical project, completed between May and early September. The next intake for this programme will be September 2017.
DCU offers a number of scholarships to international students each year. To be eligible to apply for a scholarship from DCU you must first apply to and receive an offer for a DCU Masters programme.
