Prospective Students

Welcome to the TCD Engineering.

We understand very well that your choice of career is one of the biggest choices you will make in your life.  We have therefore tried to provide you with as much information as possible below about Engineering as a career and our course at TCD to help you in that choice.

Engineering is an exciting career and offers you many choices.  In the TCD Engineering School, you can study biomedical; civil, structural and environmental; electronic and electrical; mechanical and manufacturing, electronic and computing; engineering with management.   If you would like to find out more about what different types of engineers do, take a look at the Engineers Ireland website.

Many engineers go on to become business managers and CEOs of companies.  Others go on to work at high levels in financial institutions.  This breadth of career choice is testament to the strong education engineers receive in mathematical analysis, problem solving, team work and creative design as part of their degrees. 

If you are interested to know what subjects you would be studying as part of the TCD Engineering course, you can find detail on the course here in the Current Student section of our website.

Take a look at our Youtube Channel!  The videos include laboratory experiments, student design competitions and demonstration of engineering solutions in places as far away as Malawi. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

TCD holds an Open Day each December.  Your Career Guidance Teacher will have the details.  We look forward to meeting you on that day and to answering your questions.

In the meantime, if you have questions you need help with, you are welcome to contact us at engineering@tcd.ie
