“TU720 was interesting and on the other hand challenging from time to time. I really enjoyed doing the 3rd year Automotive Engineering technology project as it allowed us to show the knowledge we gained through the course. TU720 also gave me the opportunity to proceed further into my studies and do the level 8 (TU814). Overall I really enjoyed doing the course. Dionis Porireanu - Graduate of TU720 in 2016.

“TU720 is an interesting programme that incorporates both theoretical and practical learning opportunities. The course prepares you for managerial/sales/parts/service positions in the automotive industry and has excellent employment opportunities. Upon completion, I progressed to TU814, the level 8 programme”. Thelma O’Toole
