Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Electrical Engineering (Programme Code: DT073)
This part-time programme, with a flexible modular structure is suitable for applicants who currently hold a DIT or NCEA level 7 degree or equivalent in a cognate discipline. The programme is designed to educate students to an honours level (Level 8) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
In addition to the electrical/electronic engineering core modules students have the opportunity to select a Major option from each group of the following engineering disciplines:
- Major Option Engineering Disciplines – Group A
- Electrical Power Systems Engineering
- Control Systems Engineering
- Electrical Services Engineering
- Major Option Engineering Disciplines – Group B
- Communications Engineering
- Computer Engineering
(Each Major option comprises three modules)
A typical pattern of study is as follows:
|1||Mathematics, Business and Management Studies, Digital Signal Processing 1, Instrumentation and Measurements, Field and Circuit Theory|
|2||Mathematics, Management Marketing and Law, Project Management, Digital Signal Processing 2, Major Option module 1 (Group A ), Major Option module 1 (Group B)|
|3||Major Option module 2 (Group A ), Major Option module 2 (Group B), Major Option module 3 (Group A ), Major Option module 3 (Group B)|
|4||Energy Resources and Thermodynamics, Engineering Project|
There is a requirement for all students to complete a six month engineering work placement. It is anticipated that part-time students will be already employed in the electrical/electronic industry and hence with their industry experience they will be able to demonstrate that they have already satisfied the learning outcomes of the Work Placement module.
Applicants for this programme must have successfully completed:
(a) The first two years of an honours degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering, OR,
(b) A relevant DIT or NCEA level 7 degree programme in a cognate discipline at Upper Merit or Distinction level, OR,
(c) A qualification which the Institute deems to be equivalent to either (a) or (b) above.
The minimum time to complete the lecture and laboratory programme is three to four years. Attendance is required one afternoon and three evenings per week. Single module certification is possible for those completing a single course.
How to Apply/Enrol
Completed application forms should be returned to the Department of Control Engineering (address below) by Thursday, 8th September 2011. Early application is encouraged. As the number of places is limited, candidates may be short-listed on the basis of information supplied on the application form. Late applications may be considered should vacancies remain. Candidates will be notified of the outcome or of any short listing procedures.
