The University’s School of Aeronautical Engineering opens the door to the exciting aerospace industry. This elite field is one of the most respected in Europe and is backed by excellent facilities, including wind tunnels and composite manufacturing equipment. Right now, job prospects have never been better for aerospace engineers, with a major shortage in Europe. Over 70% of our graduates work in the aerospace industry and 63% live in the Republic of Ireland.
This program provides training to Our graduates who have reached the highest levels in the aerospace industry and job prospects have never been brighter for aerospace engineers. In the third year, high-achieving students can spend a semester at the world-renowned Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, USA, or the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, USA, which currently is in the top 5 engineering schools in the US.
Employability skills for this grade are:
- Develop specialized knowledge in areas including aerodynamics, stress engineering, materials and structures, and sustainable aircraft design.
- Working effectively in multinational teams.
- Use creativity to establish innovative solutions.
- Manage the design process and evaluate the results.
- Meet the changing needs of customers.
- Arithmetic, computer skills and attention to detail.
- Project management.
- Communication (written and verbal).
- Development of economically viable, ethically sound and sustainable solutions.
The Bachelor of Engineering (BE) and Master of Engineering (ME) programs have a duration of 4 years and 5 years, respectively. Both include an eight-month period of cooperative education in a suitable industrial setting. The course provides a broad and practical study program, giving you a good understanding of aircraft design, aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, control, materials, avionics, business and maintenance, and allows you to work in all sectors of the aerospace industry. .
The program is fully ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) compliant, allowing student mobility throughout Europe. Additionally, students wishing to transfer from Level 6 or Level 7 Engineering programs can access the second or third year of the program.
The first two years provide you with a foundation in the fundamental disciplines of engineering, and the subjects taught include:
During the third and last year, all students take fundamental subjects of aeronautical engineering such as:
- Applicants must possess at the time of registration the established Certificate of Completion (or an approved equivalent) with a minimum of six subjects that must include: two grades H5 (upper level) and four grades O6 (ordinary level) or four grades H7 (upper level) Level) grades. Subjects must include math, Irish or other language, and English.
- For international candidates, the foreign equivalent is required. In addition, an officially translated degree will be required.
- IELTS 6.5, with no less than 6 in any component (or its internationally recognized equivalent).
