Undergraduate Degree Courses

Common Entry in Engineering (DC200)

The Common Entry into Engineering offers a common first year with all our other engineering courses in DCU. (It does not mean an extra year added on to your chosen course).  It allows you to explore different engineering fields before committing to a specific course. After completion you’ll continue into year 2 of your chosen degree course.

Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (DC195)

This course combines two distinct fields, Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering, to create the foundation for a versatile career.

Mechanical engineering focuses on the efficient use of material, strength, structure and movement in the manufacture and operation of products and systems.  Manufacturing engineering, meanwhile, concentrates on converting materials from one form to another.  With the two disciplines combined, this degree offers an impressive background in engineering.

Biomedical Engineering (DC197)

From realistic and powerful prosthetics to individually engineered implants, biomedical engineers work to develop products at the cutting edge of what is possible to heal and help the human body.

When you study Biomedical Engineering, you not only learn how the body works and become injured, but you come to understand how medical devices are developed to treat injuries and disease, and how we can help the body heal itself. 

Mechatronic Engineering (DC193)

Want to build the robots of the future? If you’re fascinated by robotics and automation, this is the course to do. It’s all about how we build intelligent machines through the meeting of mechanical systems such as engines and machines with the electronics needed to control them. 

This course perfectly blends mechanical engineering and electronic engineering. It offers classes in 3D modelling and design, for example, as well as circuit design and programming. 

Mechanical and Sustainability Engineering (DC194)

Mechanical and Sustainability at DCU is at heart a maths-based course, but you’ll also gain extensive skills and knowledge in engineering mechanics, computer simulation and analysis, design and manufacture, and project management.
