Manufacturing Technology (Bachelor of Engineering Degree, Level 7)
The Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Technology (Level 7) is an add-on ordinary degree, specifically designed for those with a level 6 qualification in a cognate field, such as:
- a Higher Certificate or National Certificate in Technology or Engineering, or
- equivalent HETAC / FETAC Level 6 Award
The Manufacturing Technology degree is modularised. Students taking this degree study 11 modules in total – 10 classroom based modules and 1 work based project.
Each module is 12 weeks in duration, one evening per week. We offer a range of modules in semester 1 (September to December) and in semester 2 (January to May) each academic year. All modules (except for the Project) are classroom based and take place on the LIT Campus. Minimum of 70% attendance for each module is required to pass, in addition to passing the exam element. Please note that the Exams for this course will take place during daytime hours (i.e. between the hours of 9am and 6pm)
The core modules of the course, which are compulsory for all students are as follows;
- Work Based Learning Project
- Mathematics 1
- Project Management
- Manufacturing Systems
Students can choose the other 7 elective modules from the range of modules on offer each semester.
Each module costs €575 (Subject to Change), including exam fee. On average, students would complete 2 modules per semester, but it is entirely at the discretion of each student how many modules they wish to register for each semester.
