Undergraduate Programmes in Engineering
4 year degree undergraduate education offered within the School of Engineering Academic Unit are:
- CK600PCE Process & Chemical Engineering
- CK600CEE Civil Engineering
- CK600NRG Energy Engineering
- CK600EEE Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- CK606 Architecture (via CCAE)
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.

The degree in BSC Architecture (CK606) explores new ways of living, investigates new technologies and materials, and strives to ensure that new buildings, towns and landscapes are environmentally sustainable.
The School also offers the following part-time programs:
- Part-time evening Certificate and Diploma in Process & Chemical Engineering, offered by the University’s Centre for Adult Continuing Education.
The Diploma and Certificate are aimed primarily at those working in the process industries locally (pharmaceutical, food, energy, etc.), both technicians and operatives, as well as scientists and engineers from other disciplines who wish to gain a formal qualification in Process & Chemical Engineering.
