This new BEng (Hon) in Sustainable Energy Engineering course is dedicated to investigating energy and its uses in areas such as sustainable low energy building design, building energy performance and analysis, energy production, low and zero carbon heat and power generation technologies, and energy policy and legislation.
It is a four year undergraduate course with first year entry open to school leavers or others who meet the required entry standards (the entry standards are listed below). Students who pursue other engineering courses at WIT, or another third level institution, at ordinary degree level or equivalent, may apply to transfer onto this course at the third year stage.
The first two years of the course are designed to introduce the students to the fundamentals of maths, engineering, science and technology that underpin the study of engineering in general and equip them with the knowledge required to undertake a more specific study of engineering in relation to sustainable energy in years three and four. In year three, the students go on industrial placement for a period of 25 weeks. This gives the students a taste of what professional practice is all about, how the industry operates and how theoretical knowledge is applied in practice. It also generates industrial links between WIT and the engineering industry in Ireland and abroad.
