UCD Engineering Degree Courses
As an engineer, you will make a real difference in the world and be responsible for leading the way in finding solutions to real problems. Will you develop alternative or new sources of energy, invent life-saving medical devices or create new modes of communication? UCD Engineering offers a particularly wide range of engineering specialisations, from the traditional disciplines to new ones such as Biomedical and Energy Systems Engineering.
Why UCD Engineering?
At UCD, we provide a first-class education across our engineering disciplines which are variously accredited by Engineers Ireland, the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3). Whatever the specialisation, we place considerable emphasis on the mastery of analytical skills and the use of quantitative methods. Study is based on solid mathematical, scientific and engineering principles.
Essentially these are the fundamentals of engineering and they will enable you to navigate successfully through the challenges you will face in your future career. We work with industry to ensure that our programmes produce graduates who are highly skilled and trained to address the problems that organisations and society face. This, coupled with the fact that our lecturers are recognised experts in specific fields – such as solar, wave and renewable energy, and biomedical and structural engineering – makes UCD the first choice for anyone interested in engineering.
