New One year Engineering course at DIT

Many students know that engineering is the career they want to pursue, but until they get to college they’re not too sure which area of the profession would excite them the most.

Responding to that feedback from second-level students and first year college students, DIT has launched an exciting new one-year engineering programme. Simply called Engineering (General Entry) DT097, the programme offers a comprehensive introduction to engineering maths and science, and includes modules that focus on real engineering design problems.

According to Eddie Conlon, Programme Chair and lecturer, Engineering (General Entry) DT097 is an ideal option for someone who wants to be an engineer but needs to find out more about what is involved. “This new one-year programme gives students a wide-ranging introduction to the engineering profession. There is a unique focus on group projects and students will have opportunities to explore aspects of the different engineering disciplines. Our aim is to give our students a sound basis on which they can base their decision to choose the right degree programme for them.”

Eddie Conlon can be contacted at 4024059 or edward.conlon@dit.ie   (DT097 replaces Preliminary Engineering (DT020), and qualifies for the free fees initiative)
