Engineering - Mechanical Engineering MEngSc, University College Cork
This course is offered in response to sustained international demand for highly skilled graduates in mechanical engineering for manufacturing and process engineering industries. On completion of the course, you will be able to:
show a thorough understanding of the principles and theoretical bases of modern manufacturing techniques, automation, and production processes
identify appropriate manufacturing systems for different production requirements and analyse their performance
apply appropriate technology, quality tools and manufacturing methodology to design, re-design and continuously improve the manufacturing operations of engineering companies
plan, research, execute and oversee experiments and research projects, critically analyse and interpret data, and effectively disseminate results
work effectively as a member of a multidisciplinary team, be self-motivated, able to work independently and demonstrate leadership
The course is 12 months in duration starting in September and consists of 60 credits in Part I from September to March, and 30 credits in Part II from June to September. You take 10 taught modules from the list below to the value of 50 credits and also undertake a preliminary research project (ME6019) worth 10 credits in Part I. If you obtain a minimum of 50% in the taught modules and the preliminary project, you will be eligible to progress to Part II and undertake a major four-month research project (ME6020) worth 30 credits, and submit a dissertation leading to the award of the MEngSc degree.
