Why Choose Faculty of Engineering and Design at ATU Sligo?

At the Faculty of Engineering and Design we strive for uniqueness and diversity within our courses and student body. What makes us stand out is the combination of both fields, that traditionally would not be grouped together. Our ability to see the creativity in the technical and the technicality in the creative, is what has helped us engineer such unique courses across our departments. We are looking for those powerful people who can use both the technical, logical side of the brain as well as the creative, artistic side. We want to merge these talents and have an eclectic mixture of students across our faculty.

AWARD-WINNING FOR INNOVATIVE DESIGNS

Our students won the People’s Choice Award at the National Ploughing Championships 2018 for their ingenious “Monte Loader” design. Our Art and Design students have also been up for awards such as Creative Design student Paul Roper who won the prestigious Institute of Irish Design Award for his “MagPin” creation.

MORE THAN JUST A DEGREE

From Level 6 Higher Certificates to Level 10 PhDs - many of our programmes provide professional accreditations and progressions routes. From Level 6 Higher Certificates to Level 10 PhDs - many of our programmes provide professional accreditations and progressions routes.
