The School of Engineering was founded in 1841 and is one of the oldest Engineering Schools in the English speaking world. The Baccalaureus in Arte Ingeniaria (BAI) degree was established in 1872 and early graduates played a major role in the development of local government services and infrastructure in 19th century Ireland, whilst others contributed as far afield as India, Australia, Africa and Japan.
In 1981, a new curriculum was introduced to meet the needs of the government expansion in technological education. During the first two years, students follow a common curriculum of basic courses, and may choose from a number of modules in the third and fourth years of the degree programme. These modules are grouped in such a way as to permit students to specialise in one of the following streams of the engineering profession:
- Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering;
- Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering;
- Electronic and Electric Engineering.
