Electronic engineering education - an Irish perspective
Ringwood, John
This paper describes the current approach to electronic engineering education in the School of Electronic Engineering at Dublin City University. Since the first student intake in 1979, the University has developed a range of programs to suit the needs of Irish industry, from the B.Eng degree (with single subject certification) to masters and doctoral programs with research and coursework options. In addition, the School of Electronic Engineering is committed to providing Continuing Engineering Education (CEE) which, for the most part, is integrated with the full time taught courses. Some attention is paid to the industrial training component in the undergraduate program which has been a controversial issue in Irish universities. In addition, the position of graduates within the EC is examined.
