Entry requirements

Minimum Entry Requirements?
For acceptance onto the course 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.

Note: Due to the considerable competition for our postgraduate courses, satisfying the minimum entry requirement is not a guarantee of a place. Depending on the course 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 courses.

Application dates

Applications for courses commencing in September 2024 will open in November 2023.

Assessment Info

variety of assessment methods are used to assess the taught modules including assignments (group and individual), short tests, and formal examinations. The Research Project module is assessed using presentations and reports. End-of-semester formal examinations are held in December/January and May.

Credits

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.

Duration

2-3 years

Mode of Study: Part Time
Method of Delivery: On-Campus

Schedule
Part-time students typically complete the 12 taught modules and the Research Project module over two years. The student decides what modules he/she will complete each semester and year. The Research Project module cannot, however, be completed in the first year of study. Current part-time students are typically taking four taught modules in each of semesters 1 and 2 of year 1, and two taught modules in each of semesters 1 and 2 of year 2, and the Research Project module in year 2.

The Research Project module is completed over 12 months, from September to September.
