Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers design, analyse, manufacture and maintain systems.  Typical systems could be mechanical, energy, electro-mechanical, automation, or heat systems.

Mechanical engineering applies principles of physics, materials science, mechanics, and computer control to designs using the tool of engineering mathematics and industry standard design tools, such as Computer Aided Design and Stress analysis software.        

Mechanical engineers have a unique set of skills.  They formulate and solve problems using mathematics and software tools, conduct investigations by experiment, implement fault-finding, performance testing and manage complex projects. 

Mechanical engineers carry responsibilities with regard to safety and need to consider social, sustainability and environmental aspects when designing.  They apply industry standards and codes of practice.

They need strong communication skills to support good interaction between the manufacturing, design and business departments in companies. 

The Discipline of Mechanical Engineering offers programmes based in Bolton Street site in TU Dublin City Centre campus.

All of our programmes are accredited by Engineers Ireland for the award of Professional Titles.

Our accredited M.Eng. Masters of Mechanical Engineering programme entitles graduates to apply to Engineers Ireland for the professional title of Chartered Engineer (C.Eng.)
