Modern developments in computer and electronic technologies are responsible for the increasing demand within industry for individuals with specialised computer engineering expertise. These developments are changing many fields, such as communications, science, business, medicine, space exploration, writing, and the entertainment industry to name just a few. The Graduate Diploma/Master of Engineering in Computer Engineering programme combines software and hardware developments of computer, electronic and communication systems into a condensed course of study that will give you a much sought after background for today's demanding job market. The programme is designed to:

§  To provide a broadly based training in computer engineering for graduates who wish to augment their analytical skills with skills and knowledge of computer systems, computer programming, software engineering data communications and digital electronics.

§  To provide a programme of study dedicated to computer systems and engineering, that meet the needs of graduates who wish to further develop their professional, technical and analytical skills in this discipline.

The first year of the programme (i.e. the Graduate Diploma in Computer Engineering) is designed to meet the needs of above-mentioned applications by providing broadly based training in computer engineering with particular emphasis on software design and digital computing.  It is particularly suitable for people who wish to augment their analytical skills with knowledge of software engineering, computer programming, computer systems, computer networks & data communications and digital electronics.

The second year of the programme (i.e. the Master of Engineering in Computer Engineering) provides a study course dedicated to computer and communications systems and engineering, and designed to meet the needs of graduates who wish to further develop their professional, technical and analytical skills in these disciplines.

 
 

Entrance Requirements

The principal entry requirement for the course is a primary degree (Level 8 - National Qualifications Authority of Ireland) in a relevant engineering, science or technology discipline. Applications from graduates from other disciplines who have a significant mathematics or computing element in their primary degree will also be considered.

Students may progress to the Master's programme (MEng in Computer Engineering) if they attain a minimum standard of a Second Class Honours - Grade 2 (2.2) in the Graduate Diploma.

Career Opportunities

The Graduate Diploma/MEng in Computer Engineering will equip graduates for careers in specialised areas in organisations primarily concerned with developments in computing, software, communications and electronics. Typical careers will be: Engineering support of computer networks and data communications systems operations/management; Design and development of computer networks and telecommunication systems; Software engineering and consultancy personnel; Computer network managers/service engineers; Computer/software application, commissioning, implementation and support specialists; Design group leaders, junior project managers, software systems managers; Research and Development Engineers; and Doctorate postgraduate studies.

Fees

An application fee will apply from January 2011 to all postgraduate programmes.  Please see Frequently Asked Questions for more information on the application fee.
