BEng in Mechanical Engineering

Here at IT Sligo we have a strong tradition of tool and product design that has been incorporated into the course, and which provides our students with fundamental mechanical engineering skills.

Mechanical Engineering for us is all about the design, manufacture and use of products, machines and processes. Products include everything from car and aircraft parts to domestic appliances and medical devices. Examples of machines and processes include manufacturing, test and packaging machinery as well as heating and cooling systems.

During this course you will study a broad range of technical and complementary subjects and we will reinforce your analytical and practical skills through challenging individual and group projects. Examples of group projects in the past have included design, building and testing of automated pick-and-place assembly machines, wind turbines, hovercrafts, go-karts, bale splitters and dune buggies.
