Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Electrical and Control Engineering involves analysing complex electrical and electronic circuits and power systems. In addition, computing skills, ranging from ECDL to advanced level programming in control and automation systems are required in order for students to enter careers in the many areas of electrical power, automation, robotics, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.
In the first year the student is introduced to a broad range of foundation courses that underpin modern Electrical Engineering.
In second year the student chooses either Control and Automation Systems or Electrical Energy Systems.
Optional courses are also available to allow the student broaden his/her knowledge base.
Electrical Energy Systems: techniques used and the equipment required for the efficient generation, transmission and use of electricity.
Control and Automation Systems: design and programme robotic production lines and other automated systems.
In the final year all students complete their studies by engaging in a substantial engineering project in their chosen specialist field.
