INTRA Programme BEng Electronic and Computer Engineering

Two students collaborating on a prototype
BEng Electronic and Computer Engineering


Bachelor of Engineering in Electronic and Computer Engineering both replaces and combines the best of DCU’s previous offerings in Electronic Engineering, Digital Media Engineering and Information and Communications Engineering. As well as knowledge of the science and mathematics foundations needed by the electronic and computer engineer, it develops expertise in object-oriented and embedded software, electronic circuit analysis and design, and in control system design. Students learn how to model and analyse the dynamics of a wide range of technological systems, and will be skilled in subjects such as analogue and digital systems, microelectronics, mechatronic systems, computer architecture, electromagnetics and ultra-high speed communications. 

Some key areas include: 

  • The role and responsibilities of the engineer in society 
  • Computer Engineering including digital and analogue circuit design/computer architecture/programming 
  • Electronic/photonic devices and systems 
  • Internet of Things 
  • Communications Architectures and Networks 

Work Areas 

Students have the ability to work in areas such as: 

  • Engineering Research and Development, Sales, Design and Production 
  • Computer Engineering and Programming 
  • Digital and Analogue Electronics 
  • Data Communications and Networks 
  • Digital Media Engineering 
  • Internet of Things Applications
