University rank #185 (QS) Dublin, Ireland
The ME in Engineering with Business at University College Dublin offers a unique opportunity for engineering students to complement their technical expertise with a deep understanding of the business and management aspects of engineering practice such as operations, human resources, marketing and strategy.

Overview

This Engineering with Business programme at University College Dublin is delivered in conjunction with the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, Ireland's leading business school.

The objective of the ME (Engineering with Business) is to produce graduates who have full competence in their chosen engineering discipline, are also educated in a range of business and management subjects, and have direct experience of researching and practicing as an engineer in a business environment. This programme thus caters for the career needs of the graduate and at the same time benefits the wider community by producing engineering graduates with business acumen and the potential to create wealth in the economy. 

Career

The ME in Engineering with Business is designed to produce fully qualified engineers who have a particular interest in and understanding of the business context within which engineers usually operate. It was conceived to address the perceived lack of ‘industry-ready’ engineers coming out of third-level education.

Programme Structure

  • Professional engineers need to understand the environment in which they practice.  As their career progresses, engineers are increasingly involved in functions such as finance, quality, marketing and strategy.   
  • The ME provides grounding in these areas, to give graduates an understanding of the business implications of engineering decisions.  The programme focusses on the practical application of knowledge, which culminates in the 6 month work placement and the industry oriented research project in the final year.
