DT008: B.Eng.Tech in Electronics and Communications

This programme prepares students for challenging careers in Electronic and Communications Engineering in areas such as design support, development, and production. The 2nd and 3rd years of the programme have a particular focus on communications engineering.

Communications technology is one of the most sophisticated and rapidly changing application areas of electronics. It now pervades the daily lives of everyone, through mass communication networks and person-to-person communications based on fixed and wireless networks. Examples include the internet, mobile phone systems, and the many digital communications systems being built on these technologies. Communications involves transporting a wide range of types of information, not just voice, but also images, video, multimedia, transactions, computer communications, and many others.

Entry Requirements

A pass in five subjects in the Irish Leaving Certificate examination, one of which must be English or Irish, with at least grade C3 in ordinary level Mathematics, or a qualification which the Institute deems to be equivalent.


Three years full-time, starting in September each year.


B.Eng.Tech in Electronics and Communications Engineering of the Dublin Institute of Technology.


Graduates of this programme who achieve a sufficiently high average mark in the final examinations are eligible to progress into the 3rd year of the honours degree programmes in Computer Engineering (DT081), Electrical/Electronic Engineering (DT021) or other honours degree programmes in DIT.

Career Opportunities

A wide range of career opportunities are available in the communications industry and related areas in the electronics industry. Typical roles include design support and systems planning, for example for mobile communications systems or computer communications networks.
