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; computer; electronic and electrical; electronic and computer; mechanical and manufacturing and 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.
