Brief Description

The Masters in Engineering Practice is a new and innovative Masters Programme offered by the School of Engineering at the University of Limerick. This programme is attractive to our industry learners as it provides a flexible way to combine previous studies i.e. Two Professional  Diplomas with a thesis to receive a Masters in Engineering Practice award.

 

Overview

If you are looking to progress your career and participate on an academic programme that will enable you develop your problem-solving skills as well as build on your strengths from your previous qualifications, then the Masters in Engineering practice is a programme for you. This programme aims through a one-year thesis deliverable to give you an opportunity to produce a significant piece of research and practical work that is industry focused.

This programme is attractive to our industry learners as it provides a flexible way to combine previous studies i.e. Two Professional Diplomas, one which must have been completed within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, with a thesis to receive a Masters in Engineering Practice award.

Through the medium of blended learning, learners will develop very quickly an active online learning environment where they are supported by their academic supervisor during the thesis proposal phase right up to the final presentation of their work.

There is a strong focus on engagement and collaboration with fellow learners and the different industries during the thesis phase. The introduction of an industry thesis champion who acts as a mentor for the learner provides the programme continued support from leading experts in engineering disciplines. Ensuring that there continues to be a focus on current practice, and leading-edge research on the programme.

Linking our learners with the practice of engineering both at technical and management level will produce graduates who are employable at leadership roles within their organisations.

If you have completed TWO Professional Diplomas in the following areas:

  1. Aviation
  2. Operations Management
  3. Quality
  4. ICT
  5. Management
  6. Innovation

Your thesis route will continue to focus on your area of interest.
