Dear Future Student,
Thank you for considering engineering at the University of Limerick. You will have noticed that UL does not now have direct entry routes for civil, biomedical, mechanical and design and manufacture Engineering. If you wish to study one of these subjects at UL, then you should select the code LM116 Engineering. If you then enrol into Engineering at UL, you will participate in a common first year and at the end of the year you will choose which of these four disciplines you wish to further study. After successful completion of the programme, you will graduate as a civil engineer or a mechanical engineer or a biomedical engineer or a design and manufacture engineer.
We have included a statement in the CAO handbook which reads as follows, "Choice may be restricted subject to degree option capacities". We have included this statement to cover exceptional circumstances. We will make every endeavour to ensure students receive the programme of their choice.
Prof. Jeremy Robinson FIMMM, MIMechE, Chartered Engineer
Head, School of Engineering, University of Limerick
