Electronic and Electrical Engineers design and create the enabling technologies that allow us to monitor, manage and control energy supplies. They also design and produce the information and data processing technology we need, the communication systems and smart technologies that are behind the remote management of wind and solar energy among other things.
This is a “hands-on” practical degree in electronic engineering with specialist options in Design, Renewable Energy, and Electrical Engineering.
Electronics is about the design and workings of computers, mobile phones, robots, amplifiers, televisions, car engine controllers, factory production controllers and much more.
Whether you have done science at secondary school or not is irrelevant – we start from scratch.
The modules taught for the first 18 months are common among all students followed by 2 to 3 months of industrial placement in Ireland or abroad. In year 3 you choose your specialist option from either Design, Electrical Services Design or Renewable Energy.
Our teaching philosophy is: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” From day one, you will be using both your hands and your head.
This is a programme to ensure that all students quickly feel part of a learning community, see the benefits of shared aims and are motivated to achieve those aims through teamwork.
