This innovative DCU Higher Diploma in Engineering Analysis and Technologies is specifically designed to allow students who have not been previously exposed to engineering mathematics, software, design and fundamental principles at a sufficient level for them to pursue engineering opportunities in the workplace, in further education or in lifelong learning activities. The selected learning activities and modules will imbue the students with the ability to engage with engineering problems, contexts and tools, thus enabling them to participate in strategic areas for the future workspace.


The proposed Higher Diploma programme has the following objectives:
– To develop the students knowledge of mathematics, numerical problem solving and analysis, software, engineering design and fundamental engineering principles.
– To develop the students ability to identify, formulate, analyse and solve engineering problems and to integrate knowledge, handle complexity and formulate judgements related to engineering problems.
– To develop the students awareness of the socioeconomic and technological challenges faced by society, of their cognitive processes and the mathematical and software tools available to them in order to design appropriate solutions.
– To develop the students ability to collaborate successfully, communicate effectively and to think critically in order to develop and apply creative solutions which integrate knowledge and understanding of engineering principles to solve societal challenges.
