Programme Title: Higher Certificate in Electronic Engineering
If you are under 23 years old on 1 January you must have achieved Grade D3 in five Leaving Certificate subjects, including Mathematics and English or Irish or a FETAC Level 5 qualification or equivalent unless otherwise stated. That is 5 subjects: O6/H7, English or Irish: O6/H7 and Mathematics: O5/H7, or better to apply for year one of this programme. Mature students (over 23 years on 01 January 2020) may be exempted from this requirement and are eligible to apply.
- All applicants must have competence in spoken and written English.
- Eligible candidates may be interviewed.
The flexible Higher Certificate in Electronic Engineering enables prospective students to progress to a Level 6 National Certificate in Electronic Engineering in a timeframe approximating to current full time delivery, but with significantly higher levels of participative flexibility, depending on their circumstances and capabilities. Classes occur in both evening and day time mode.
This accredited engineering qualification will lead to employment in the many companies operating in high technology industries. It is the first step in attaining a Degree in Electronic Engineering from TU Dublin Tallaght.
The programme involves a mix of Classroom and laboratory sessions supported by self-directed reading and research on specific topics. Modules include Analogue and Digital Design, Programming, Computer Networks and Radio Systems. A major project is also completed.
Using repetition of class work, classes will be made available to students on Monday and Thursday evening or Tuesday and Friday afternoon. In addition and optional Wednesday evening will be available for those seeking to accelerate their progression. A small number of Saturdays may also be required during the Semester. The Programme is developed as a flexible mode of third level engineering education. The student can establish a timetable of classes by attending during the day, evening, or a combination of both as complete freedom of movement is permitted between all session slots.
