Postgraduate Research course
The programme is aimed at existing manufacturing, mechanical or engineering professionals, and those migrating from associated disciplines. The principal entry requirement for the Masters programme is a Level 8 honours degree, at minimum second class honours (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent), in a relevant engineering, computing, or technology discipline.

Study of Sole Modules
Two modules on this course can be studied separately. These modules are Cyber-Physical Systems & IoT and Data Analytics & Machine Learning.

Entry requirements

Applicants from other Level 8 degree disciplines who have a minimum of five years experiential learning in an appropriate manufacturing environment (with a demonstrable knowledge of mathematics and computing) may also apply. Their admission to the program will be determined by the Limerick Institute of Technology Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Process.
