  • To develop the ability to identify, formulate, analyse and solve engineering problems and to integrate knowledge, handle complexity and formulate judgements related to Electronic & Computer problems.
  • To develop the skills to design components, systems or processes to meet specific needs and the knowledge and understanding of analysis and design processes and techniques and the ability to apply them in unfamiliar situations
  • To allow a more intensive exposure to modern, industry relevant technologies through optional Majors in the Internet of Things (IoT), Nanotechnology, Image Processing and Analysis or Advanced Data Networks.

General Entry Requirements

The following general requirements apply:

An honours degree in Electronic/Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Computer Sciences or other Engineering disciplines is a normal requirement for direct entry onto the Graduate Certificate/Graduate Diploma/M.Eng programmes, however:

There are two entry routes for both the Graduate Certificate/Diploma:

  • A basic primary degree in a relevant disciple

or

  • A related Diploma plus a minimum of three years relevant experience. Applicants applying via this route will also be required to attend an interview as part of the application process.

Non-EU applicants are assessed under the same criteria as specified above and their qualifications are also checked for equivalence using the NARIC system (UK National Academic Recognition Information Center).

Existing students have the performance-related options of transferring between programmes, such as moving from the Graduate Diploma to the Masters. 

For those taking a single module a recommendation from the module coordinator is required.

Dublin City University is proud to award merit-based scholarships to high achieving students who enter the Faculty of Engineering and Computing and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences for the 2016/17 academic year. These scholarships are available to Indian applicants only and are based on academic merit to those who have a Full Offer. 

The Faculties also award scholarships of €1,000 to high achievers entering Masters and Bachelor programmes who are ranked by academic achievement.
