The Masters in Mechanical Engineering (ME) (60 ECTS Level 9 master’s) course follows on from the four-year undergraduate BE programme in Mechanical Engineering, providing students with the opportunity to experience and complete advanced mechanical engineering education and research within the framework of the academic and professional requirements for Chartered Engineer status. This course is also open to students who have completed their degree in other third level institutes. This course combines advanced taught modules and transferable skills modules with a significant research and development project (Semesters 1 and 2). This large group development project, which is the capstone of the ME, is conducted in collaboration with an engineering research or industry partner and is aligned with active research themes.
Individuals must have a minimum Second Class Honours, Grade 2 (H2.2), in a Level 8 engineering degree in a related discipline, or equivalent, from a recognised university or third-level college. Factors taken into account in determining admission will include the specific content of the undergraduate degree, the applicant’s performance, and the availability of places
