Entry Requirements & Fees
Minimum requirements for a PDEng would typically be a 2.1 honours degree in a relevant area as defined in Section 5.4 of the handbook of academic regulations and procedures. This also facilitates recognition of prior learning (RPL) and would recognise candidates with a lower qualification provided they have considerable industrial experience, and evidence of the ability to study at Masters level or above. Research-based patents or peer-reviewed publications would also be recognised. Students in this category may be required to complete MQ5000. Also, modules taken under the auspices of the Engineers Ireland and the Irish Computer Society CPD programs could be accumulated to meet entry criteria. Examples of such modules are listed in Table 1.
