The programme is aimed at existing manufacturing, mechanical or engineering professionals, and those migrating from associated disciplines. The principal entry requirement for the Masters programme is a Level 8 honours degree, at minimum second class honours (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent), in a relevant engineering, computing, or technology discipline.

What are the entry requirements?

Applicants from other Level 8 degree disciplines who have a minimum of five years experiential learning in an appropriate manufacturing environment (with a demonstrable knowledge of mathematics and computing) may also apply. Their admission to the program will be determined by the Limerick Institute of Technology Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Process. A deep knowledge of manufacturing environments and the potential benefits and challenges facing manufacturing from digitalisation would be beneficial. An interview may form part of the selection process.
