Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at TCD.
Mechanical Engineers are central to any successful economy with an ever increasing demand for higher level qualification particularly in Ireland. Our department focusses on research led teaching with maximum involvement of undergraduates in project work and commitment of our large body of research students to the teaching experience.
Our main research areas are Fluid Mechanics and Energy, Bio-Engineering and Materials Science, Manufacturing, and Design. We run two undergraduate and two postgraduate taught programmes and support about 50 research students through funded programmes from a variety of industrial, government and European industry/university consortia.
Our Department is contained in a single purpose built building named after the famous 19th century Irish Engineer, Charles Parsons who made outstanding contributions in the area of turbine propulsion and generation.
Details of our courses, research, staff and other information about this Department can be accessed on the website.
