The Faculty of Science & Engineering at NUI Maynooth offers great opportunities for Scientists and Engineers to fulfil their career ambitions whether they are recent school leavers or full Professors. The Faculty offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses to over 1100 students across the full spectrum of scientific activity and is home to many outstanding researchers. Courses are delivered by internationally renowned scientists and engineers in modern well-equipped laboratories, so NUIM students have plenty of opportunities to become great Scientists, Engineers and Innovators.
At undergraduate level, students choose from a wide range of degree options. For example, some students will select a specialised denominated honours degree on their CAO application such as:
Specialised courses like these complement more broadly based degrees. For example students who wish to study one of the more traditional scientific disciplines such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Experimental Physics, Mathematical Physics, Mathematics and Applied Mathematics should select :
This degree programme leads students to an honours degree in their chosen discipline but also allows a flexible range of subject choice throughout their studies. Outstanding students on this course can also select the highly prized double honours degree programme (e.g. B.Sc. (Double Honours) Biology and Chemistry) but this selection is only made as they approach the final year. Similar flexibility in subject choice is available to engineering students who can select a B.E. honours degree that allows choice between a broad range of Engineering topics before selecting which engineering specialism is most suitable for them. These students should select:
