Department of Mechanical / Polymer Engineering

You know that Mechanical and Polymer Engineering is a growth industry with excellent employment prospects and a growing need for graduates. You know that renewable energy is one of the biggest engineering challenges of our time. At the Department of Mechanical and Polymer Engineering we offer a range of certificates and degrees designed to meet these needs. We were pioneers in Polymer education in Ireland, and have contributed to the development of many major polymer technology industries in the Midlands, such as Athlone
Extrusions, making our student placements truly valuable.

We offer a specialised degree in Mechanical and Polymer engineering and another in Mechanical engineering and renewable energy. We are the only IoT in Ireland accredited to award PhD qualifications in Polymer Engineering.

You will use the latest equipment and technology, including an industrial 3D printer, in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art Engineering and Informatics building.

Several of our courses are fully accredited by Engineers Ireland and our Honours degrees are recognised for entry into Post-graduate Diploma of Education programmes.
