Mechanical Engineering / Innealtóireacht Mheicniúil

Engineers Ireland Accredited 

Advanced Entry to year two following successful completion of TU805 Engineering (General Entry) Year 1

Mature applicants (23+) are welcome. Further details at www.tudublin.ie/mature

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest, most broad-ranging and versatile engineering disciplines, covering all industry and many research sectors, including Power Generation, Aerospace, Engine Design, Pharmaceutical Processing, Biomedical Device Design, Renewable Energy Design, Transportation, and many more.

It’s all about using science, maths and technology to find better ways of making mechanical and electro-mechanical things work, such as designing electric vehicles to reduce pollution, designing enabling devices for people with a disability or improving the design of a wind turbine.

This programme will give you the knowledge and competencies that you can apply in many fields of industry and research, including an excellent foundation in engineering science and maths, advanced design theory and practice, high-quality project work and practical workshop/laboratory hands-on skills.

On graduation, you will be able to identify and define a mechanical engineering challenge, formulate and analyse effective and sustainable solutions, and implement the best solution; design mechanical and mechanical-related systems, components and processes; and conduct advanced mechanical engineering research, involving the analysis and interpretation of research data, to attain useful empirical and scientific engineering knowledge.

You’ll be able to practice as a professional mechanical engineer on an individual basis, within team-based frameworks and as a contributor to multidisciplinary settings.

Professional Accreditation
The programme is accredited by Engineers Ireland and graduates
can become members of Engineers Ireland. Following further
studies and work experience, you may apply to become a Chartered Engineer (C.Eng.).

On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide. 

Mechanical Engineers work across a wide range of industries, from Aeronautics to Manufacturing, and from Quality Control to Sustainable Energy, Transport and Safety.

Roles vary from individual practice to working within a team or contributing in a multi-disciplinary setting. The programme is accredited by Engineers Ireland and graduates can become members of Engineers Ireland. Following further studies and work experience, you may apply for Chartered Engineer (C.Eng.).

The Honours Mechanical Engineering Degree provided me with a wide array of theoretical knowledge, hands-on experience and the necessary support whenever I needed it. In particular, I believe the degree’s strong emphasis on the more practical, industry-oriented aspects of engineering was instrumental in me finding a position in my chosen profession during this difficult economic period. I would strongly recommend that anyone looking to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering consider studying at TU Dublin.

Students can transfer from Level 7 to year 3 of our level 8 programme. Graduates of our Level 8 programme can register for our CEng Accredited Masters  Pogramme in Mechanical Engineering at Level 9 at TU Dublin.

On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide
