Higher Secondary School
University College Dublin international admission is based on a variety of factors including the students' past academic records and grades, standardized test scores, etc. If an interview is required as part of the application, the university will be in touch with the applicant through a phone call or an online interview.
As an engineer, you will make a real difference in the world and be responsible for leading the way in finding solutions to real problems. Will you develop alternative or new sources of energy, invent life-saving medical devices or create new modes of communication? UCD Engineering offers a particularly wide range of engineering specialisations, from the traditional disciplines to offerings in areas such as Biomedical Engineering, Structural Engineering with Architecture and Optical Engineering.
At UCD, we provide a first-class education across our engineering disciplines, which are variously accredited by Engineers Ireland, the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3). Whatever the specialisation, we place considerable emphasis on the mastery of analytical skills and the use of quantitative methods. The study is based on solid mathematical, scientific and engineering principles. Essentially, these are the fundamentals of engineering and they will enable you to navigate successfully through the challenges you will face in your future career.
We work with the industry to ensure that our programmes produce graduates who are highly skilled and trained to address the problems that organisations and society face. We also pride ourselves on being research intensive and our curricula engage students in a culture of academic excellence and inquiry. This, coupled with the fact that our lecturers are experts in their fields, makes UCD the first choice for anyone interested in engineering.
As a UCD Engineering student, you’ll enroll in a common first year, which allows you to gain an understanding of the many different engineering disciplines available, before being offered an unrestricted choice of specialisation (subject to health and safety based capacity constraints). We have the widest range of degree choices in Ireland and, after completing this common first year, you can choose from one of the following:
