PRECISION ENGINEERING BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING


What is the programme about?


This Level 7 degree in Precision Engineering has been designed with industry to respond efficiently and effectively to the needs of the Precision Engineering industry. The programme focuses on the key factors required in the design, manufacturing, and assessment of high value components in the materials processing sector with specific emphasis in metal cutting and related processes. This is a workshop/lab based programme with hands-on experience on state-of-the-art CNC machines, CAM software and metrology equipment. Students will work as individuals and in groups on a variety of industrial standard engineering projects.


This programme can be completed in one year full time. Alternatively, a work/learn model can be used over two years; students work three days per week and study in LIT two consecutive days per week.


Programme graduates will work as precision engineers in world class manufacturing environments and will be highly skilled in areas of CNC machining, CAD/CAM, metrology and material selection methods.


Who is the programme suited to?


This Level 7 add-on programme is suited to those with an engineering background and qualifications and who wish to work in precision engineering industries and to develop their career as a highly skilled and knowledgeable engineer. Graduates of the programme will work as precision/application engineers developing and implementing strategies and process improvement using CAD/CAM in world class manufacturing environments.


Modules


Metrology and Statistical Process Control, Applied Mechanical Engineering Mathematics, Materials and Mechanics, Advanced Engineering Technology and Process Planning, Advanced CNC Machining, Final Year Project.


What can I do after the programme?


On successful completion of the programme, graduates will be typically employed in one of the following roles: Precision Engineer in a world class machining environment, Applications Engineer utilising CAD/CAM to maximise utilisation of machines tools, Manufacturing Engineer, Production Engineer, CNC Machinist and Programmer, Materials Engineer, Process Control Engineer, Equipment test Engineer/Technician, Engineer in the medical device, human implant, and Life Sciences Industries.
