MECHANICAL ENGINEERING BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING


LC285 What is the programme about?


This programme provides students with a broad understanding of Mechanical Engineering technology allowing students to enter the job market as an Associate Level Engineer or to pursue further education such as the Level 8 Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Facilities) (Honours) at LIT.


This programme focuses on the practical aspects of Mechanical Engineering, such as Computer Aided Design, Engineering Processes and Maintenance, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Plant Engineering, Instruments and Control, etc. Mechanical Engineers apply sophisticated computer based tools and equipment such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), robotics and computer controlled manufacturing systems to aid the quality and speed of machinery production. The programme is taught with a practical, hands-on approach, giving students the skills needed for today’s employment market.


We welcome applications from holders of apprenticeships in the mechanical trades, and from persons with manufacturing backgrounds, that wish to upgrade their skills and qualifications. Direct entry into Year 2 is possible for suitably qualified applicants with Craft qualifications or manufacturing backgrounds.


Who is the programme suited to?


If you are curious by nature and believe that you would enjoy working with complex machinery, then this programme is for you. You will learn how to build, repair, modify, design and fault-find modern mechanical systems and technologies. The programme has a significant amount of practical work involved and you will acquire excellent skills and knowledge.
