Facilities

Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities including discipline-specific laboratories, design studios and workshops.

These facilities are equipped with the technology to enable the practical aspect of the programmes to be delivered.

We also have an Energy Engineering Research Laboratory which is located in the Carroll Building. Significant investment was made to create this space which is dedicated to energy research. Among the laboratory equipment is an Experimental Wave Tank which is one of a small number of such facilities in Ireland.

The laboratories and work areas include the following:

    • Electronic Laboratories
    • Engineering Design Studio
    • Automation and Control Laboratory
    • Thermodynamics Laboratory
    • Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
    • General Workshops
    • Computer-Numerical-Control Workshop
    • Materials Laboratory
    • Mechanics Laboratory
