About this Course

The QQI accredited Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering is a one-year part-time learning top-up degree that provides key competencies in the area of Industrial Engineering and related subjects

Industrial engineers make decisions concerning the best use of people, material, equipment, and energy in achieving an organisations aims. To accomplish the best use of resources, the industrial engineer systematically collects analyses and arranges factual information to fulfil management needs. These are critical skills, especially where resources are scarce. There is a need for skilled industrial engineers across all industries, in manufacturing (traditional and modern), and services as well as in banking, transportation, consultancy, distribution services, the health sector, military and other areas of government.
The QQI Level 7 Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering is available a part-time basis and aims to enable participants learn how to analyse and improve business processes and accomplish the best use of resources.

Learn how to improve productivity, efficiency, and profitability, as well as how to provide more choice to customers, reduce response times and improve quality.
Develop key competencies vital in the effective management and efficient organisation of numerous national and international organisations.
The practical nature of the coursework lends to preparation for work in the field of industrial engineering.
Part-time learning allows students already working in the area extra time to hone skills.

Entry Requirements

It is expected that all candidates undertaking the programme and related constituent modules will have previously demonstrated a proficiency in mathematics, statistics and ICT by completing prior cognate qualifications at NFQ level 6 or above. It is further anticipated that most learners will have continued to advance their engineering, mathematics, science, ICT, business, design and development skills in their subsequent employment.

The College proposes to provide a refresher programme in mathematics and statistics to facilitate learners wishing to renew their skills before entering the programme. All learners will also be provided with personal access to the comprehensive suite of online tutorials provided by Lynda.com in respect of ICT skills.

It is expected that most applicants to the programme will have previous experience of work measurement and methods engineering. Learners without this experience may wish to first complete the Colleges proposed bridging module at NFQ level 6.

The B.Eng. in Industrial Engineering programme is delivered exclusively in English. Learners entering the programme are required to be proficient in English with non-native speakers having an English Language Testing System (IELTS) minimum score of at least 6.0.

Access Processes Including Recognition of Prior Learning
The College welcomes applications from mature learners. All such candidates are considered on an individual basis in the light of their particular prior qualifications and work-related experience.

All applicants are required to have the necessary capabilities to benefit from and succeed on the programme. In particular, mature candidates are required to have equivalent proficiencies in mathematics, engineering and ICT as candidates entering on the basis of their NFQ level 6 qualification in engineering.

Determinations as to the equivalence of a learners prior certified and experiential learning are made by the Colleges RPL and RPEL committee in accordance with the Colleges QQI approved quality assurance and enhancement procedures.

Where the programme is found to be suitable, candidates holding the requisite prior NFQ (or equivalent international frameworks) requirements for the programme with recent educational and training experience are directly admitted. Candidates with relevant experience arising from certified and/or experiential learning are considered. This involves the presentation of the learners experiences against nationally equivalent standards of knowledge, skills and competences. This consideration is undertaken formally by the College's RPL committee in accordance with the College Quality Assurance procedures approved by QQI. (See Attached).Candidates who fail to meet the entry requirements, or for whom the programme is currently unsuitable are advised of access, transfer and progression paths to alternative programmes. Unsuccessful candidates who can complete additional bridging training are encouraged to re-apply for admission.
