You are very welcome to the TCD School of Engineering, an institution rich in tradition and progressive in outlook.

The School was founded in 1841 and is one of the oldest Engineering Schools in the English speaking world. The Baccalaureus in Arte Ingeniaria (BAI) degree was established in 1872 and early graduates played a major role in the development of local government services and infrastructure in 19th century Ireland, whilst others contributed as far afield as India, Australia, Africa and Japan. In addition to many famous engineers, the list of graduates includes landscape artist, Nathaniel Hone, and songwriter, Percy French. Well-known graduates of more recent vintage include Chris Horn of Iona Technologies and John McGuire of Trintech.
