About

The Master Electronic and Computer Engineering at National University of Ireland, Galway is part of an integrated 4+1 programme of study, meeting the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation. Successfully completing this ME course, as part of an accredited 4+1 structure, will allow you to achieve the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status upon graduation.

Overview

The ME programme at National University of Ireland, Galway on its own is a 60ECTS one academic year course of study. Graduates with an honours degree in a cognate Engineering discipline may be eligible to take the ME. This will be of interest to graduates who wish to study more advanced topics in their core engineering discipline. Applicants wishing to use the ME programme as part of their CEng certification should be aware that professional accreditation is assessed by the Engineering Councils on the basis of the aggregate periods of study (Level 8 + Level 9), and not on the Masters year alone. Candidates need to satisfy themselves that their undergraduate (Level 8) degree meets the relevant standards.

The ME in Electronic and Computer Engineering is a nine-month, full-time Masters programme designed as a follow-on to a Level 8 (Honours) degree in Electronic & Computer Engineering or equivalent. It allows graduates to develop advanced, industry-relevant skills in a range of topics in Electronic & Computer Engineering, providing them with a Level 9 qualification that satisfies Engineers Ireland’s criteria for Chartered status.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme will be well qualified to pursue careers in industry and academic research, and will be equally comfortable working in the software and hardware industries. Numerous opportunities exist for graduates of this programme in industries ranging from large multi-nationals, indigenous companies, state bodies and small businesses. Graduates may also wish to join or form their own start-up business, as many of our graduates have done so successfully in the past.
