What is the BEng in Manufacturing Engineering Course?
Graduates of the HC in Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering, or equivalent, are being invited to apply for advanced entry to the award year of the BEng in Manufacturing Engineering programme which is delivered over two academic years to facilitate part-time learners.
This degree course designed to enable participants to obtain a deeper understanding of the technologies and processes involved in a manufacturing environment with particular emphasis on the automation and control of machines and processes. The course topics include robotics, programmable logic controllers, engineering design, mechatronics, operations management and project.
BEng in Manufacturing Engineering (60 credits, Level 7)
€220 per 5 credit module, €1,320 per annum
€165 per 5 credit, €990 per annum
Course assessment is comprised of a combination of examinations and ongoing continuous assessment work. Exams are scheduled to take place at the end of each semester.
