The Department of Electronic Engineering offers you one of the best ICT learning environments anywhere. You will be surrounded by highly-motivated fellow students on a state-of-the-art campus; you will be taught by – and work with – young, energetic, and approachable staff; and you will learn not just science and technology but an ability to design innovative systems, now and for the rest of your professional life. At Maynooth, we view our engineering students not as people who attend lectures but as apprentice professionals.
Our goal is to help you learn the skills you need to lead Ireland forward in the next century. That means you will be immersed in a programme which links all the key elements of electronics, computers, and communications together in a cohesive framework, a framework which will allow you to excel in your own specialisation. In addition, you will be exposed to the practice of engineering principles right from your first week on campus and, in the third year, you will have the opportunity to spend up to six months developing your engineering skill in industry.
