This stand-alone Level 9 Diploma programme, which is accredited by TU Dublin, has been designed in collaboration with leading employers to specifically address gaps in knowledge, skills and behaviours across technology management, business acumen and engineering execution. The programme is designed for those who are committed to gaining the higher-order skills and abilities required to operate in new or unfamiliar contexts, such as handling complexity, and are linked to employment as a senior professional or manager with responsibility for the work output of teams.
The Diploma programme is delivered on a part-time basis involving both in-person and online classroom sessions, project work, assignments, research, and workplace mentoring. The major building blocks en route to high-level engineering competence are covered across five core modules over a 12-month period.
These five core modules are delivered via 11 module components (dates listed below) which are supplemented with pre and post component assignments. The programme is rounded out by the inclusion of a final team project (explained in more detail below) that spans the duration of the programme.
The 2024 programme will be a blended offering, with an in-person induction day taking place in Engineers Ireland (Clyde Road, Dublin) at the start of the programme, as well as some additional dates scheduled in-person during the year. The rest of the modules will take place as online classrooms.
All online classroom module components will take place via Zoom. The modules have been adapted to online delivery and most will run between 9am to 5pm. A further breakdown of timings is available for each of the component dates - please contact the Programme Coordinator (details below) for more information.
The Team Project module involves teams of participants choosing a real-world challenge from one of their organisations and presenting a project solution/recommendation based on team research and analysis.
This team project develops the skills of research and enquiry to enable learners to generate, evaluate and select ideas which demonstrate the role of a professional engineer in business and strategy formulation. Each project team will have an industry expert assigned to their project who will act as a supervisor to guide each team through the process.
This module concludes with an opportunity for each group to present a business case for their project solution/recommendation to a panel of personnel from Engineers Ireland, TU Dublin and selected industry experts.
Successful participants will receive a Diploma from Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), which is worth 30 ECTS credits at Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
