ME Optical Engineering
Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 120)
Between 2014 and 2016 Ireland outpaced the EU28 in the industrial sector of Computer, Electronic, Optical and Electronic Equipment, with an increase of over 56% in net sales value from an already high base. Optical technologies play key roles in many areas including biomedical imaging, astronomy, quality control, security, sensing and telecommunications (most obviously with the introduction of multi-camera mobile phones).
Very exciting innovative technologies are rapidly emerging, driven by the ability to display and capture large amounts of real time optical data. Optical engineers are involved in identifying and designing these systems, with the aim of improving people's lives, generating employment and creating new business opportunities.
-Delivered by a highly research intensive School holding 151-200 in the QS world subject rankings, this two-year programme provides 6-8 months professional work experience as an embedded element of the programme.
-You will gain an advanced understanding of a broad range of areas within optical engineering, such as biomedical signal processing, optoelectronics and biomedical imaging.
-Research project topics are spread across a wide range, but related to and drawing on the topics covered in the taught modules. Similarly, your work placement can involve a variety of roles in a range of different companies in the electronic and computer engineering field.
