Teaching and Learning in Engineering and Architecture
Rigorously trained, creative, engineers and architects are vital for achieving a knowledge-based, sustainable future. The UCD College of Engineering and Architecture is a key player in this future. The College includes six Schools: Architecture, Biosystems Engineering, Civil Engineering; Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering; Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering, Mechanical and Materials Engineering; comprising one of Ireland's largest groupings of research expertise with exciting new work across a wide range of topics. Details of recent research may be found on the individual School websites. More
