Now, more than ever, there's a world of opportunity for mechanical engineers to build Ireland's new sustainable energy supply and develop our industries.

We are a community dedicated to excellent learning, teaching, and research in mechanical and industrial engineering. We run the BE in Mechanical Engineering (accredited level 8) and major parts of the BE in Energy Systems Engineering. Taught graduate courses are available leading to Master's in Mechanical EngineeringMaster's in Enterprise Systems Engineering, (Postgraduate Course of the Year Award, 2013) and Master's in Occupational Safety Engineering and Ergonomics, with part-time options available on some programmes. We also take part in the Master's degrees in Energy Systems Engineering and Occupational Health and Safety. Opportunities are available for PhD and Master's degrees across a range of topics where we have internationally leading research expertise.

Currently, there are more than 30 post graduate students, including Masters, PhD and post-doctoral researchers. In the past year, we have published 26 peer-reviewed journal articles, with a similar number of international conference presentations and publications and attracted approximately €1m in research funding from state agencies, industry and other sources (e.g. EU).
