Higher Certificate in Mechatronics
Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical, electronic, robotic and software engineering systems that are used in modern manufacturing industries.
Mechatronics is how high-tech manufacturing is done today and is becoming one of the fastest growing career areas. Mechatronics engineers design, build and operate intelligent machines such as the robots and flexible manufacturing systems of today and for tomorrow.
During this course students will learn how to design, build and control the machines and processes that are found in the biomedical, automotive, food processing and high volume manufacturing sectors, to name but a few. Mechatronic engineers are problem solvers by nature, looking for solutions to sometimes difficult engineering applications.
Following completion of the L7 BEng in Mechatronics degree, students can progress straight on to the L8 BEng(Hons) in Mechatronics 1-year add-on degree (subject to satisfactory performance at L7). There is more information on the L8 add-0n here:
*New Common Points Scale
The new Leaving Certificate Common Points Scale from 2017 is not directly comparable with the scale that was in existence from 1992 to 2016.
Applicants should list their CAO course choices in genuine order of preference and they will be offered the course highest up on their list that they are deemed eligible for, if any.
