What is... Mechanical Engineering?
This programme is designed to provide mechanical engineering graduates, and graduates from closely-related engineering disciplines, with specialised skills and knowledge in mechanical engineering.
The programme consists of 12 taught modules and a Research Project module. The programme focuses on numerical simulation techniques for structural and fluid-flow analyses, renewable and sustainable energy technologies, and biomechanics while also offering modules on innovation and entrepreneurship.
The programme award is a Master of Engineering (ME) Degree, with an option to exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip). Graduates of the programme will be ideally suited to engage in advanced mechanical engineering research, analysis, and design.
The programme consists of 12 taught modules each worth five "European Credit Transfer System" (ECTS) credits and a Research Project module worth 30 ECTS credits, giving the programme a total ECTS credits value of 90.

For acceptance onto the programme an applicant must hold one of the following:
1. An honours bachelor degree, with a minimum attainment of second class honours grade 2, in mechanical engineering or a closely-related engineering discipline (e.g., manufacturing, chemical, energy etc.)
2. Any qualification(s) deemed by the TU Dublin as being equivalent to No. 1 above, when taken in conjunction with relevant work experience.
If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as detailed on our website. Applicants for this programme should have a minimum IELTS (Academic Version) English Proficiency of 6 overall (or equivalent) with nothing less than 6 in each component.
Note: Due to the considerable competition for our postgraduate programmes, satisfying the minimum entry requirement is not a guarantee of a place. Depending on the programme of study applications will be assessed based on your academic grades and may also take into account your work/life experience. Applicants may also be required to attend for interview for specific programmes.
Applications open from November 2021.

Method of Delivery Classroom
All taught modules are delivered each academic year, six in semester 1 and six in semester 2. The taught modules are delivered in the evenings, from 6-10 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The taught modules are delivered in two-hour blocks. Each semester has a total duration of 15 weeks, with twelve weeks of class contact time, one week of review activities and two weeks of formal examinations. Full and part-time students attend the same classes.
Full-time students are required to take six taught modules for each of the two, 15-week semesters, which involves a class contact time of approximately 12 hours per week.
The Research Project module is completed over 12 months, from September to September.
