Engineering Technology with Electronics
Level 5 QQI Award Engineering Technology (5M2061)
Engineering is transforming how we live, work and study. Engineering is a highly diversified and exciting profession with a wide range of specialisms emerging as new technologies, business models and engineering challenges develop. From life-saving biomedical technology to energy-efficient housing, engineers are developing innovative solutions for the benefit of society. Today's engineering students will have the opportunity to work on technologies that have not yet been invented. For those who wish to embark on a career in engineering this innovative course will prepare participants for entry into third level, through a range of practical and theoretical subjects.
One of the following:
- Leaving Certificate
- A QQI Level 4 Award
- Mature applicants are welcome
- Engineering Workshop Processes
- Work Experience
- Control Systems
- Computer Aided Drafting (2D)
- Word Processing
- The Internet
- Level 5 QQI Award Engineering Technology (5M2061)
Experience the University Life
In January, the students are treated to a week-long opportunity in TU Dublin - Tallaght Campus to experience the facilities and taking part in Labs and lectures in the Electronics Department, as part of the Electronics module.
This course is supported by FIT, which offers students the opportunity to acquire essential skills to gain employment. Students are given training in job interview techniques and CV preparation.
Students will be required to undertake a period work placement in an organisation connected to their vocational area during the academic year. Students are required to source their own work placement but will be assisted in this by the work experience teacher. The work placement is usually for a period of 10 days or a minimum of 60 hours. Students usually find the work experience element of the course to be invaluable and should bear in mind that a successful work placement can sometimes lead to further opportunities.
The following techniques will be used to assess the knowledge and skills that students will have achieved on successful completion of modules:
- Student Record
- Collection of Work
- Skills Demonstration
- Examinations (written)
DFEi: Graduates may progress to the QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Computer Software Development and Networking
Elsewhere: Graduates are eligible to apply through the CAO and/or the Higher Education Links Scheme to a range of higher certificate and degree programmes, at Universities, Institutes of Technology and Technological Universities.
