This programme is aimed at providing mechanical engineering graduates and graduates from suitable engineering and related science backgrounds with specialised skills and knowledge in mechanical engineering. The programme consists of 12 taught modules and a research project module and focuses, in particular, on numerical simulation techniques, renewable and sustainable energy technologies and biomechanics.
The programme award is a Masters of Engineering (M.E.) degree, with an option to exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma (Pg.Dip). Graduates of the programme will be ideally suited to engage in advanced mechanical engineering research, analysis and design.
The award of Masters of Engineering (M.E.) will be made to students who successfully complete the programme. The award of Postgraduate Diploma (Pg.Dip.) will be made to students who successfully complete the 12 five-ECTS-credits taught modules. A Single Subject Certificate will be made to students who opt to undertake a single module in any year or stage and who successfully complete that module.
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. The programme modules are listed below:
* Entrepreneurship for Engineers
* Innovation and Knowledge Management
* Research Methods
* Statistical Analysis for Engineers
* Applied Surface Engineering
* Finite Element Analysis
* Mechanical Design Technology
* Computational Fluid Dynamics
* Heat and Mass Transfer
* Sustainable Energy Systems
* Renewable and Alternative Energy Technologies
* Research Project
A variety of assessment methods are used to assess the taught modules including assignments (group and individual), short tests, formal examinations, reports and presentations.
To be accepted onto the programme an applicant must hold either:
* An honours degree, with a minimum attainment of second class honours grade 2, in an accredited mechanical engineering programme or
* Full corporate membership by examination of a recognised professional engineering institution (e.g., Engineers Ireland)
* An honours degree, with a minimum attainment of second class honours grade 2, in a suitable engineering discipline
* Any qualification(s) deemed by the DIT as being equivalent to no. 1 above, when taken in conjunction with relevant work experience.
