What is Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Computer and Communications Engineering?

This programme prepares students for a rewarding professional career as a communications and IT engineering specialist in a very wide range of manufacturing, service and public sector organisations and is accredited by the national professional engineering organisation, Engineers Ireland. The use of mobile telephony and the Internet continues to transform our social and business lives. Global data networks enable us to communicate via text messages, voice or video, to access and exchange information and to transact business securely. These networks provide the links between computer systems or specialised computing devices. In order to maximise the benefits of this blending of communications and computing technologies, organisations are increasingly reliant on access to a new range of engineering development skills. Given the level of demand, such skills are in short-supply and this programme addresses the need to provide appropriate, key, technical professionals and offers the prospect of valuable career opportunities. The programme combines elements of electronic, software and communications engineering and associated hardware appropriate to the merging of technologies encountered in today's ICT systems. Lecture and tutorial material is applied in practical project and laboratory work. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of application-oriented design and development skills and in-depth knowledge relevant to the needs of both high-tech ICT producers, advanced system providers and operators.
