Engineering ingenuity to create innovative products that combine different technologies is one of the prominent strengths of Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineers are adaptable, through knowledge of fundamental principles of science and engineering reinforced with transferable problem solving skills. The graduate’s ability to integrate quickly within the workplace is key to their career development.
This course will equip graduates to show initiative, participate actively in teams, manage, organise and communicate effectively. In addition graduates will have a strong sense of ethics and awareness of the social impact of their actions. The Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering course at Dundalk Institute of Technology aims to provide a stimulating environment in which the students’ interest in mechanical engineering is fostered by a modern and flexible teaching and learning strategy.
The External placement module in Year 2 – Semester Two aims to allow students to develop professional skills through an applied experience in various phases of engineering.
Demand for our graduates in a wide range of engineering industries has been strong with many having job offers from both local and national companies shortly after sitting their final exams including:
Hiab MOFFETT truck-mounted forklifts
OpenHydro Suretank Ltd.
Glen Dimplex; Kingspan Group
Follow on courses:
BEng (Hons) in Sustainable Design Engineering
BSc (Hons) in Engineering Entrepreneurship
Masters in Renewable Energy Systems (with Bridging Studies) Progression Opportunities
This course provides the foundation for transfer routes to honours degree courses in other Institutes of Technology and Universities in Ireland and abroad.; Note: Students who have successfully completed the first two years of this course and who wish to leave after two years, may be awarded a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Engineering.
