What is Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines covering all industry sectors including power generation, aerospace, heating, transport, engine manufacture, pharmaceuticals, design and research. The Mechanical Engineering Department at DIT has over 55 years of experience in delivering programmes and continues to revise and expand its courses by the introduction of advanced and modern technological modules. The Department has a dynamic Erasmus programme in collaboration with overseas institutes and students undertake a range of laboratory, computing, design and project work as part of their studies. The Mechanical Engineering Programme maintains its traditional flexibility, allowing its graduates a wide choice of opportunity in all industries and future studies to Masters and Doctorate taught and research programmes. The programme also provides the core transferable skills which prepare graduates for career changes when desirable. Graduates may be involved with the management of projects in industries in Ireland and abroad and are equipped with the necessary management, business and communication skills. Students are exposed to a wide range of laboratory and practical mechanical engineering tasks that complement the theoretical modules. The Department places great emphasis on independent learning and learners develop their skills in this area through project work, independent assignments and team work activities. This four-year full-time programme prepares students for the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) Honours degree award. Each year consists of two semesters. Year 1 is a common programme (DT025) and at the end of Year 1, students can opt for the Mechanical Engineering programme (DT022).
