Course description

• Level 5 Engineering Technology 5M2061

Engineering is a highly diversified and exciting profession
with a wide range of specialisms from mechanical, civil,
electrical, computer, building, biomedical, structural,
modern technologies, aircraft to mention a few.
Everything around us has been designed and mostly
by Engineers. They are problem solvers and creative
investigative people. From life-saving biomedical
technology to energy-efficient housing and sustainable
energy, engineers are developing innovative solutions for
the benefit of society.
Many areas that future engineers will work in have not yet
been created, which results in a very exciting sector for an
individual to study and work. For those who wish to engage
on a career in engineering, this course aims to prepare the
student with an understanding of the field of engineering
and will prepare students for entry into third level, through
a range of practical and theoretical subjects

The following modules will be offered subject to availability
or demand and are subject to change:

• Engineering Workshop Processes
• Engineering Theory Workshop
• Computer Aided Draughting
• Engineering Drawing
• Electronics
• Communications
• Work Experience
• Materials Science
• Safety and Health at Work
• Maths for STEM
• Physics

Students who graduate form this course are well prepared
and have an understanding at a foundation level in
engineering are and can pursue further study at degree
level. QQI graduates are eligible to apply for degrees to
Universities and Technological Universities for Level 7- and
8-degree places throughout the country such as TUD, Trinity
College, DCU, UCC, DKIT, MTU, ATU, TUS to mention a few.
Students are well placed to gain apprenticeships
in the many different engineering sectors through
Generation Apprenticeship Ireland on such programmes
as Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering Services
Management and Equipment Systems Engineering.
Additionally, QQI level 5 award holders can apply for many
non-related degree areas in Technological Universities and
on some university degrees throughout the country.
