The BEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (Hons) from Waterford Institute of Technology prepares students for employment in a very broad range of engineering situations.


The Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (Hons) program offered by Waterford Institute of Technology teaches students about this area that is focusing on the design and development of products and processes.  Mechanical engineering has a strong product and equipment design element, while manufacturing engineering analyses the processes and systems required to produce goods.


Industrial placement takes place in semester 6, which can be up to six months duration (March - September). These placements have been very successful at providing for the students a perspective on the broad variety of material that they have covered in the course. 

Students have been previously placed in Bausch & Lomb (Waterford), Honeywell (Waterford), Intel (Leixlip), Janssen Pharmaceutical (Cork), Lipton's (Cork), Servier (Wicklow), Schering-Plough (Wicklow), and Stryker (Cork).
