Electronic and Computer Engineering (DC190)

This single programme, with four major options in Year Four, replaces and combines the best of DCU’s previous offerings in Electronic Engineering, Digital Media Engineering and Information and Communications Engineering. You’ll be taught through conventional lectures, extensive tutorials (particularly in Year One), laboratory exercises and projects. Through these you’ll develop the ability to model and analyse the dynamics of a wide range of technological systems, as well as learn a creative and innovative approach to problem solving. The curriculum of the first three years and the 22.5 credits of core modules in Year Four are common to all ECE students. In addition to the traditional engineering focus on mathematics and design, there is a strong software and programming theme running through our ECE programme. You’ll learn about C, C++, Java, Embedded Systems, Linux and Windows Operating Systems, Data Structures and Algorithms, Hardware Description Language, Object-oriented Programming, and in two of the Year Four majors, Web Application Development. In Year Three, you’ll participate in a six-month INTRA work placement. Most students choose a paid engineering internship with a business in Ireland, but some students may go abroad or be placed in research positions within DCU. In Year Four, you’ll select a major option and gain relevant skills through major-specific modules and an individual undergraduate project.
