Engineering Technology Opportunities at Monaghan Institute

Engineering Technology equips learners with a basic understanding of the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, which is essential for anyone wishing to pursue a career in engineering. The course offers practical skills in Engineering principles and processes to include machining, precision measurement, laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC machining and bench fitting, along with the theoretical knowledge of machining processes with an emphasis on safe work practices. These skills would form the basis of any course in Engineering which learners might later pursue at a third level institution or on an apprenticeship. The course also provides students with an opportunity to study QQI Level 5 Mathematics which is required for entry into Engineering degree courses at third level.

A minimum of 10 days’ work placement must be completed. Practical workshop sessions form an integral part of the programme.

If you want to pursue a career in Engineering or if you enjoy STEM subjects, this course offers you a stepping-stone to begin an exciting and lucrative career. There will always be a demand for skilled engineers in many different fields such as consulting, manufacturing, or research and development.
