Ordinary Degree in Engineering Systems Maintenance
What is Engineering Systems Maintenance?
Engineering Systems Maintenance is an engineering activity which allows graduates to work in a
mechanical / manufacturing / electrical engineering maintenance environment in high-tech multi-national
companies as well as traditional indigenous industries and public utilities. These activities are a key
component of an industry’s competitiveness as well as ensuring efficiency, safety and reliability of
production and service delivery of utilities. Graduates of the course will have acquired the requisite
knowledge and skills to operate effectively in an environment where diagnostic and applied engineering
skills will be valued and rewarded.

Why do we Need Proper Maintenance?
Almost all machinery and engineering equipment requires the following; Proper installation and layout;
Continuous monitoring of safe working; Effective planned maintenance; Corrective maintenance
procedures; Fault-finding and diagnostic techniques; Ensuring quality output and standards; History of
operation, failure and operating costs; Purchasing and life-cycle costs. Implementation of these activities
requires personnel whose role is recognized as forming part of a dynamic team responsible for the
reliable and safe operation of plant and equipment.

What is the Course About?
The Engineering System Maintenance programme was specifically designed to meet the increasing
demands on maintenance technologists. The function of maintenance engineering personnel has
changed in the past two decades This has lead to a demand in modern industry for an integrated multi-
skilled, flexible maintenance technologist, with expertise in the complementary disciplines of electrical ,
mechanical , fluid power and computer applications .




Where Can I Find Employment?
Career prospects are not limited to any specific industry or service. It could be in the Manufacturing or
Processing ( food , pharmaceutical , chemical ) industry , Building services maintenance , Hospitals and
other public utilities , Specialist equipment suppliers , State and Semi-state agencies.

What are the Career Prospects?
Excellent…manufacturing industry in Ireland has expanded significantly over the past number of years,
especially in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry. Promotion to higher positions within an
organization is dependent on your ability, application and dedication. The option of self-employment is
