This programme is designed to produce Masters graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of instrumentation involved in Materials analysis and characterisation together with a detailed knowledge of Materials Science, Materials Processing, and Surface Technology. The specialist modules will allow students to become fully briefed in the material science and engineering associated with high strength materials used in the aero-industry or with techniques for materials and coatings selection design, together with the materials selection methods typically employed by engineering consultants.
The program will enable our graduates to have the ability to develop creative and innovative solutions to technical problems using their engineering expertise. Using their aeronautical engineering knowledge they will be able to apply new technological developments to the design, manufacture, testing, operation and maintenance of aircraft.
The objective of the MSc Applied Physics programme is to meet the needs of graduates who wish to augment their skills with an understanding of applied physics and knowledge of the physical principles underlying material properties, and the operation of processes and equipment, for the high technology sector. The UL Physics Department is working with companies such as Analog Devices, COOK Medical, Intel Corporation, Seagate and BorgWarner. This engagement advances science, develops new products and processes, and also creates employment opportunities for our graduates.
The MSc Applied Physics is a calendar year programme intended for graduates of science, particularly those with backgrounds in general physics, astrophysics, and physics education. The programme is also suitable for graduates of engineering, subject to experience.
The new M.Arch. graduate programme at SAUL offers an innovative course and a recognised route into the profession of architecture for those with an undergraduate degree in architecture; it can be tailored in length depending on an applicant’s prior learning.
The Master’s Degree in Art and Technology is a 12 month graduate program that fuses emergent media, computer science, electronic music and digital art. Through its strong emphasis on practice, the programme explores the impact that technological advances and art have had across cultural disciplines. Students develop critical skills in practice, production, research and theory.
The MSc programme is designed to produce highly qualified graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of the instrumentation involved in the analysis and characterisation of materials together with a detailed knowledge of Materials Science and Materials Processing. Specialist modules and a specialised research project will allow students to become fully briefed in Biomedical Device Materials and how such materials interact with the human body.
This is a conversation course specifically designed for the graduates who have obtained a primary degree in a science or engineering discipline (other than Chemical Engineering) and wish to develop a career in the process or pharmaceutical industries. This course provides a firm grasp of the fundamental principles underlying the field of chemical engineering and practical engineering experience in the design and operation of chemical process. It offers an exceptional opportunity for science and engineering graduates to obtain a recognised qualification in the Chemical Engineering profession in only one year of full-time study.
The MEng provides a comprehensive grounding in targeted areas of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Students develop a detailed knowledge of Software Engineering and its application in the field of Communications Systems.
The Graduate Diploma/Master of Engineering in Computer Engineering is a two-stage programme which provides a broadly based training in computer engineering for graduates who wish to augment their analytical skills with skills and knowledge of computer systems, computer programming, software engineering, data communications and digital electronics. It offers a combined programme of study dedicated to computer systems and engineering and designed to meet the needs of above graduates who also wish to further develop their professional, technical and analytical skills in this discipline.
Game Design & Development is an ever-evolving and multi-disciplinary field which focuses on a variety of specialties including programming, game design, audio and art. Students of this program study game design and development using traditional industry milestones and structures starting at the atomic level, exploring and rapidly iterating upon individual mechanics, progressing through to systems, incorporating narrative and eventually balancing the game as a whole. As a medium, games have grown beyond entertainment to encompass culturally critical works in the fields of art, education, health and business. Game design and development takes into account social, cultural, artistic and industry requirements. The programme is deeply rooted in game design and programming and seeks to develop a culture of entrepreneurship, innovation and artistry in games.
