Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Mechanical engineering education and training involves learning how to creatively apply a strong scientific, mathematical and practical basis to the design of safe, reliable, environmentally sound and cost effective systems and equipment.

Students are exposed to a wide range of laboratory and practical mechanical engineering tasks that complement the theoretical modules.

During Year 1 of the programme, students undertake a wide range of practical skills including welding, metal fabrication, machining, technical drawing, computing and experimental work. These practical lifelong learning skills are developed further in year 3 of the programme when students undertake an individual project, combining research, design, mechanical development, testing, analysis, presentation and report writing skills.

The Mechanical Engineering Department places great emphasis on independent learning and learners develop their skills in this area through project work, independent assignments and team work activities. Students are encouraged to visit Industries as part of their studies and report on their findings to their peers and lecturers.

This three-year full-time programme prepares learners for the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical Engineering) degree award. At the start of the third year, learners are offered a choice; Process Plant Technology or Manufacturing Technology.

Those who have successfully completed the programme satisfy the academic requirements for Associate Membership grade of Engineers Ireland.
