Subjects taught

Course Structure
Module themes include medical sciences, biomedical engineering, advanced control theory, computer vision, healthcare ethics, law, risk management and signal modelling and compression.


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.

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.
