DCU does electronics but would be less hands on and more on design. I think you can apply as a mature candidate in that case. I would write and email to the the program chair and see how you get on.

does anybody here have any opinions on ul (limerick) versus lit? from what i hear lit covers more practical stuff while ul is a bit more theoretical.

also i'm 27 and don't have the leaving cert, is an access course really necessary? i don't mind doing it if it is, but i don't want to study for a year if i don't really need to.

Well, I'm guessing you could skip out on the access course, but if you havn't done the leaving cert. you may have missed topics in maths, etc. which are pretty important, or so I hear. If you're on equal footing with applicants that have done the LC, then you shouldn't need it, but you mighta forgotten stuff in your time out of school, while they're coming straight into college.

Also, i'd go for UL, cos i'd do Aeronautical

www.cit.ie

the cert to ordinary degree course here is very good, you can go on to the Honours degree in structural with a 70% + average or transfer to the UCC course if you do well in 2 structural exams and have your 70%+ in maths(from college)

Currently doing a degree in structural engineering and when I'm finished I'd like to get into demolitions.

I don't mind going to the USA if required (I'd actually quite like to) so paying up to $40,000 or so for a masters isn't something I'd rule out. Problem is, I can't seem to find any programmes at all that deal with explosives and demolitions.

Does anyone know where I should be looking?

co op

I'd highly recommend a university that operatates a 7 month co op placement. I did one myself. Most of my class mates and myself ended up working with the companies that we did our co op in. lots of contactcs made and thats whats required during a recession

UL, DCU and CIT are colleges that offer such co ops, Not sure if the other ones do but they might do so

Night courses in Electronic Engineering

Hi All,

Not sure if the is the right spot to post this, if I'm wrong please redirect me to the appropriate place.

I am looking for a night course in EE, with a focus on analog electronics. I would like to eventually get a degree in EE.

The best I could find so far is IT Tallaght - there seem to be very few EE night courses. DIT would be more convenient and they don't run one. Does anyone have any opinions on the course in Tallaght?

http://www.it-tallaght.ie/PartTimeCo...,17549,en.html

I've been doing electronics as a hobby for years and would like to get some sort of qualification.

Thanks !

Go to the secretary of the Eng Dept in you college and/or the Careers Dept and ask for any information on where past graduates of your course have found employment or what they're up to. That should give you an idea.
