DT088 PG Certificate in Mechanical Engineering

Location:

DIT Bolton Street

Start date:

19th of September 2011

Description:

The certificate programme forms a subset of the taught Master of Engineering (ME) in Mechanical Engineering programme, delivered in full and part-time modes, that has been running successfully in DIT since September 2008. The duration of the certificate programme is one academic year during which the learner is required to complete six taught modules. Each module is worth five “European Credit Transfer System” (ECTS) credits, giving the programme a total ECTS credits value of 30. The full list of modules is given below from which the learner is required to choose six. Classes are scheduled in the evenings only (Monday and Tuesday) from 6-10 pm on the Bolton Street campus. Modules are delivered in two-hour blocks. The programme follows the standard DIT calendar of two 15-week semesters comprising 12 weeks of lectures, one week of review activities, and two weeks of end-of-semester examinations in January and May. The certificate programme is designed to provide mechanical engineering graduates, and graduates from closely-related engineering disciplines, with specialised skills and knowledge in mechanical engineering. Graduates of the programme will be ideally suited to engage in advanced mechanical engineering research, analysis, and design.
