Mechanical engineering graduates are in high demand for their ability to design machines and think innovatively. They are trained to be creative and inventive, and to solve difficult problems such as the development of new technologies and devices in the aeronautical, automotive, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, semi-conductor, and medtech sectors. They’re involved in almost every aspect of our day-to-day life. Their innovation and design has brought us powerful cars, efficient household appliances and entertainment systems. They combine principles of mechanics, materials and energy to design faster automotive, aeronautical and robotic systems. In this four-year programme, you’ll study subjects such as engineering graphics, mechanical science, electrical practice, fluid mechanics, machine dynamics and robotic systems. You’ll learn about engineering analysis, design, manufacture and maintenance, and be trained in the use of complex equipment (computers, medical devices, robots, various consumer products). In our laboratories, you’ll face real-world issues. You’ll learn the language of engineers and begin to think like an engineer.
In your final year, you’ll carry out a major design project, which will develop your problem-solving, design, project management and communication skills.

After graduating from TU Dublin, Tallaght, I was extremely happy to achieve a place on the Boston Scientific accelerated graduate development programme. It’s great to put the skills that I learned in TU Dublin Tallaght to the test and also develop many new skills such as planning, communications and leadership.
