ITB’s engineering courses are accredited by Engineers Ireland (www.engineersireland.ie) and reviewed every 5 years. This gives an outside objective evaluation to our programmes from the relevant professional body, so ensuring they stand up to the best standards worldwide

“In Mechatronics, you cover multiple areas of Engineering such as mechanical, electronic, computer, telecommunications and control systems, and this was one of the main reasons why I chose the course. The lecturers are very helpful and will always make sure you get the support you need whenever you encounter a problem. There is always support available to you whenever you need it, whether it’s from the lecturers, college staff or even your fellow students. On the course I study programming, circuit theory, mechanics, electronics and microcontrollers and I have gained leadership skills, project management skills, the ability to work in a team, time management skills, and most importantly, public speaking skills.”
