Description

Engineering is one of the most exciting courses and careers you can pursue.  As an engineer, you can find yourself at the heart of just about any field, from high-tech industry and medicine to financial services, energy-aware technologies and biotechnology, the cutting edge of dynamic industries of tomorrow.

Common Entry into Engineering: The benefit of choosing Common Entry means you get an insight into all of our degree programmes in Year One and you can decide which one you prefer to pursue at the end of Year One.  You still get to finish your degree in four years.

BEng and MEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering: Electronic and computer engineers create and innovate to invent, design, improve and build products and technologies that really matter in people’s lives. 

BEng and MEng in Mechatronic Engineering: Labour saving machines and robots are surpassing human speed and accuracy.  Moving parts that are precisely controlled by state of the art electronics. Mechatronic engineering is the science of combining mechanical, electronic and software engineering to create these ‘intelligent’ machines.

BEng in Sustainable Systems and Energy: This course will give you the knowledge to meet the changing world of sustainability and the growing global challenge of transitioning to zero carbon. It's suitable for individuals who have an interest in energy, who care about the environment and who want to contribute to saving our planet. The focus of this programme is on how materials, energy systems, factories, transport and technology of the future are developed and deployed in a sustainable way. 

BEng and MEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering: Mechanical engineering focuses on the design, manufacture and operation of products that have structural and moving parts.  Manufacturing engineering concentrates on converting materials from raw form to the product form.  It’s about the manufacturing process and systems from basic assembly to high-tech manufacture in a sustainable and efficient manner.

BEng and MEng in Biomedical Engineering: This course is designed in consultation with the healthcare industry and medical community and integrates aspects of biology and medicine with aspects of technical engineering required to create medical devices.  Biomedical engineering students can feel confident about job prospects. Graduates will be employable worldwide.

Title of Lecture

BSc in Global Challenges

Presenter

Dr Shirley Coyle School of Electronic Engineering and

Professor Iain McMenamin, School of Law and Government

Description

Looking for a challenge? Take on the global challenges through challenge-based learning.

The DCU BSc in Global Challenges is for people who want to challenge themselves to take on the world’s problems. This unique programme integrates social science and technology studies through challenge-based learning. Students will engage with concrete problems, such as climate change, gender stereotypes, fake news, and global inequality through

simulations and hackathons, inspired by examples from the public, private, and NGO sectors, as well as student-generated challenges. We will equip graduates to develop socially effective technological solutions to real problems.
