Year One begins with anatomy and the basic sciences, giving you an understanding the anatomy of the body and of the pathophysiology of injury. You’ll also study the theory and practice that underpin physical conditioning to prevent and rehabilitate injury, and enhance health and performance.
In Year Two, you’ll start to learn how to assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries and further develop the theory and practice of training. You’ll also undertake First Aid and Emergency Care in order to prepare you to provide pitch-side…Find out more
Year One will provide you with the essential background knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology. These are of vital importance in later years. Thought-provoking laboratory work is an integral part of the course in all years of the course.
The major emphasis in Years Two and Three is on analytical science, with chemical and biological aspects being developed in parallel. In Year Three, you can choose between a chemistry stream or a biology stream. Both streams cover the major, modern state-of-the-art…Find out more
This degree combines lectures, tutorials and stimulating laboratory work and projects with fundamental physics concepts and exciting, real-life technological skills and applications.
The basic foundations of physics will be laid in Years One and Two, while in Years Three and Four, you can choose to study specialist topics, such as instrumentation, nanotechnology, semiconductor materials, plasma physics and microfluidics.
In Year Three, your paid INTRA work placement will give…Find out more
Working in the laboratory plays a vital role in your learning, and because our laboratory facilities are among the most up-to-date, you’ll get the most practical experience possible.
Year One of this course is common with other DCU science courses.
In Year Two, the mainstream chemistry lectures and laboratories are developed in parallel with relevant topics in physics, mathematics, computing and biochemistry.

The Mechatronic Engineering degree begins with fundamental scientific principles and leads through to a set of modules dealing with design, analysis, manufacture and modelling of electromechanical products and systems.
The undergraduate programme focuses on eight core areas:
- Basic Science and Mathematics — As the roots of mechatronic engineering are in the sciences and mathematics, you’ll undergo courses in the basic sciences and engineering mathematics.
- Electronic Circuit and Systems Design—…
This four-year BEng (Honours) Degree (with the option to complete a fifth year for a Master’s degree) has eight academic themes, each addressing a particular aspect of mechanical and manufacturing engineering:
Mathematics and computing
Dynamics and control
In the first two years of their degree students cover the fundamental mathematical principles that underpin the financial models studied in later years. Students also study practical and finance-related subjects such as computer programming, economics and accounting. In years three and four students apply sophisticated mathematical techniques to real-world problems in insurance, finance and banking.
In year three, students spend eight months on a paid work placement (INTRA) in the actuarial or financial industry. The placements are, typically, with major…Find out more
The Common Entry structure allows you to make an informed decision about which stream to specialise in after first studying fundamental courses such as analysis, algebra and probability, together with computing and statistics.
At the end of Year Two, students on this Common Entry programme enter one of two courses—there are a limited number of places in the third year of the BSc in Actuarial Mathematics, with entry based on a student’s performance in Years One and Two.
The analysis of financial phenomena relies on a firm mathematical foundation. You will especially need to understand how numerical systems can persistently undergo change and how to handle mathematically the randomness which is in-built in the financial system. In Years One and Two, you will study several branches of mathematics, especially probability, statistics, and advanced calculus. You will also develop your understanding of economics, accounting and computer programming, and be introduced to applications of mathematics in finance.
In Year Three, you will start to study…Find out more
By studying a wide range of scientific and engineering subjects, you’ll gain the necessary skills to succeed in the emerging, technology-driven biotech industry.
At the start of the Biotechnology course, you’ll be introduced to the basic sciences, mathematics and computing. As you progress, you’ll discover more comprehensive areas of biotechnology, ranging from genetics and process engineering to immunology and gene cloning.
In third year, specialist areas are introduced. In addition, in Year Three you will have…Find out more
