Rigorously trained and creative, engineers, architects and landscape architects are vital to achieve a knowledge-based, sustainable future. The UCD College of Engineering and Architecture is a key player in this future.
In collaboration with industry, the College carries out research, training and technology transfer. Our courses at undergraduate and graduate level are developing constantly to reflect our changing environment; offering students and researchers diverse and exciting opportunities to fulfil their study and career ambitions. The UCD Bachelor of Engineering and the UCD Bachelor of Architecture are consistently the first choice for Irish Leaving certificate students. The contributory factors to this popularity are as follows: World Rankings, Accreditation, Research and Internships.
Engineering Your Future is a week-long, hands-on programme for Transition Year students who have an interest in science and maths.
