Undergraduate Programmes in Engineering
First year engineering at UCC will be common for all students from 2018.
- H4 Mathematics
- One Laboratory Science Subject
2017 Entry Points 443
- 130 Places available in UCC Engineering
Incoming students will be introduced to the 4 Engineering Disciplines to help the new first years make an informed choice regarding the Degree they want to pursue from the following Programmes:
- CK600PCE Process & Chemical Engineering
- CK600CSE Civil Engineering
- CK600NRG Energy Engineering
- CK600EEE Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Each student is guaranteed one of their top two choices. If their top choice is oversubscribed, places will be allocated on a competitive basis based on the 1st year examination results.
In addition, we should point out that a 1st year information programme consisting of Research Site Visits and Industrial Talks will take place to help reinforce the decision making process for second year choices.
Process & Chemical Engineering (CK600PCE) offers students specialisations in pharmaceutical, food and bioprocessing industry, or supply chain engineering & management. The degree includes a six month work placement between third and fourth year.
Civil Engineering (CK600CEE) offers students specialisations in structural engineering and construction, infrastructure and environmental engineering, environmental services in buildings and in informatic systems and engineering management.
Energy Engineering (CK600NRG) is offered to produce Engineers with a skill set targeted at the increasingly important energy sector. Energy engineering involves sourcing, assessing, designing, converting, transmitting and supplying useful energy to meet our needs for electricity, transportation and heating and cooling.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering (CK600EEE) offers specialist modules in a broad range of topics including among others; circuit design, signal processing, telecommunications, microelectronic engineering, control engineering, electrical and electronic power supply systems, optoelectronics/photonics and radio frequency electronics, and includes a five month work placement either in Ireland or abroad.
