Subjects taught

Course Structure
The programme provides two specialized module sets that introduce advanced techniques and topical content: one focusing on wireless communications and the other on embedded systems. These are supported by core modules which provide techniques that are widely applied and reusable across a range of engineering applications. The programme includes a large project element to allow students to demonstrate their expertise in their chosen specialism.

Comment

Engineering is perhaps best defined as the science of creating innovative, efficient and useful systems to serve society in almost every domain of endeavour. It is a creative and intellectually-challenging profession for people who want to solve real world problems and participate in the development of technology, systems, and devices, both locally and globally. Engineering at Maynooth immerses students in all the key elements of electronic and computing systems to prepare them for their professional career.

Application date

All applications should be made through the PAC system.

Closing Date : 30 June 2019

Course fee

In general, there are two levels of fees payable. EU students from EU countries including Ireland pay a subsidised level of fees for both taught courses and research programmes. Tuition fees for students from outside the EU are not subsidised and are thus somewhat higher than for EU students.
