This ME is designed as a follow-on to a Level 8 (honours)
degree in Electronic & Computer Engineering or equivalent. It
allows graduates to develop advanced, industry-relevant skills
in a range of topics in Electronic & Computer Engineering,
providing them with a Level 9 qualification that satisfies Engineers
Ireland’s criteria for chartered status. Important information re
the level of the ME qualification and students’ satisfaction of
accreditation requirements is provided on the course website.
Students can choose from a range of transferable skills modules
that enable them to develop skills in business, innovation,
regulatory, and research methods, while also providing options in
advanced mathematical techniques and information technology.
These modules will prepare students for life-long learning and
development in a professional engineering career, either in
industry or in a research environment. Advanced technology
modules provide students with a range of electronic and
computing technology topics designed to complement proposed
research project areas, such as: signal and image processing,
embedded systems, sensor systems for biomedical applications,
communications systems, automotive applications, the internet
of things, and advanced system-on-chip technologies.
Graduates of this programme will be well qualified to pursue
careers in industry and academic research, and will be equally
comfortable working in the software and hardware industries.
Numerous opportunities exist for graduates of this programme
in industries ranging from large multinationals to indigenous
companies, state bodies, and small businesses. Graduates may
also wish to join or form their own start-up businesses, as many
of our graduates have, successfully, in the past.

Entry to the programme is open to individuals who have Second
Class Honours in a Level 8 (or equivalent) degree in a related
discipline from a recognised university or third-level college.
Factors taken into account in determining admission will include
the specific content of the undergraduate degree, the applicant’s
