D) International Engineering Program (4-years duration)

I. Credit-Transfer Program between Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology and Trinity College Dublin (TCD)

Trinity and TIET have developed a credit transfer International Engineering Programme (IEP) which enables students admitted to undergraduate engineering programmes at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology (TIET) the opportunity to study at Ireland’s leading university, Trinity College Dublin. The programme provides an opportunity for engineering undergraduates to secure a degree from Trinity, consistently ranked as Ireland’s top university and within the top 1% of universities worldwide.

Drawing on the expertise of the School of Engineering and the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity, this programme focuses on delivering a research-inspired, outcome-based educational experience to students. Eligible students will pursue the first two years of their course in India before transferring to Ireland for years 3 and 4 of the degree programme, subject to achieving the required grades. Additionally, qualified students can apply to pursue a Masters (MAI) qualification by completing one further year at Trinity.

The IEP undergraduate programme is multi-dimensional, having a strong technical focus and also an emphasis on developing other skills engineers require, such as team working skills, knowledge of ethics and an awareness of the social and environmental impacts of their work. Trinity graduates have a broad-based understanding of the whole discipline and a detailed knowledge of their chosen specialist area. They often end up working, both locally and internationally, on multi-disciplinary projects that require innovative approaches and thinking.

The first two years, taught in Thapar, introduces the different facets of engineering including introductory courses in engineering science and mathematics. From third year onwards, students have the opportunity in Trinity to broaden and deepen their knowledge and understanding of their chosen specialism. Subjects are studied in much greater detail and students undertake real-life, practical projects. See examples on Trinity’s websites: www.tcd.ie/Engineering/ and www.scss.tcd.ie/.

This engineering programme in Trinity is professionally accredited by Engineers Ireland, who are part of the Washington Accord, and therefore are internationally recognized. Graduates have both a broad- based understanding of the whole discipline and a detailed knowledge of their chosen specialist area. The aim is that graduates will be able to continuously train themselves, to adapt and move into related or newly emerging areas as their careers develop after graduation.

Pedagogy

Pitchbook Universities Report, 2016/2017

The engineering programs offered at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology reflect the long-held ethos that engineering education should be broad-based to enable graduates to develop throughout their professional careers, finding solutions for as yet unseen challenges. To further improve the educational experience of the students, Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology has embarked upon a mission in partnership with Trinity College Dublin to deliver a research inspired, outcome based educational experience to the students at all levels. This is a major shift in focus from the current content-oriented imparting of engineering education to a project-based and outcome-oriented educational experience. The new teaching pedagogy lays emphasis on applying engineering skills through relevant engineering design projects, improving team-working skills and awareness of issues relating to ethics and professionalism. In order to achieve this objective, Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology has partnered with Trinity College Dublin to implement a ‘Contemporisation Program’ to modernize and enrich the current education curriculum to a significantly higher paradigm. TIET will harmonize the curriculum of the undergraduate engineering programs to synchronize completely with Trinity.

TIET has adopted the learning outcomes approach for teaching with greater reliance on self-directed learning, mini-projects within the courses, research-led teaching, use of project work and assignments. All academic staff is encouraged to bring in cutting-edge research ideas from their own research into their teaching.

“Trinity-Thapar’s one of a kind collaboration has been a boon for our cohort. The experience of studying in an international university is unparalleled. The transition, culturally and academically, was made plain sailing by the tremendous support from Trinity and Thapar.”

Benefits of Credit Transfer Program

Flexibility of choosing the engineering specialization:(Subject to equal distribution as far as possible across the most popular specialisms)

The student at the time of admission at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology may apply for any specialization on offer depending upon his/her rank in the qualifying examination. The student can pursue his/her interest area of study after undertaking a comprehensive set of engineering, science and mathematics courses including special engineering design projects during the first two years. With the knowledge gained during the first two years at TIET, the student is better equipped to undertake a specialization at Trinity.

There may be a possibility of selecting a different discipline at TCD for the year 3 and 4, however, this cannot be guaranteed and is entirely dependent upon availability within defined limitations on capacity and is subject to equal distribution as far as possible across the most popular specialisms. The specializations offered at Trinity are:

  • 1. Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
  • 2. Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
  • 3. Electronic Engineering
  • 4. Electronic/Computer Engineering (combined program)
  • 5. Computer Engineering

These courses aim to broaden and deepen the student’s knowledge and understanding of the chosen specialism. Subjects are studied in much greater detail and students undertake real-life, practical projects. A student who chooses Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering could end up testing the pre-cast concrete used to build the London to Heathrow railway; a student who chooses Computer Engineering, might design a special purpose microprocessor.

The B.A.I./M.A.I. (Engineering) degree program is based on two years of general engineering, providing students with a firm grounding in the principles common to all disciplines, followed by two/three years of specialization. Graduates are professionally accredited engineers with both a broad-based understanding of the whole discipline and a detailed knowledge of their chosen specialist area. The aim is that graduates will be able to continuously train themselves, to adapt and move into related or newly emerging areas as their careers develop after graduation.

Opportunity to secure a Trinity College Dublin undergraduate engineering degree

Trinity College is consistently ranked amongst the top world universities. This unique collaboration gives Thapar students an opportunity to secure a globally recognized undergraduate engineering degree.

Cost Savings

The student will pay Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology fee for the first two years of the program. For years 3 and 4, eligible students will pay the relevant Trinity fee for the course of study. By choosing this approach the student will pay substantially lower fees than their international counterparts who opt for a four-year program at Trinity. Additionally, boarding and lodging costs would be significantly lower as the student will be spending only two years in Ireland.

Postgraduate education and Placement

The students will have an opportunity to apply for a Master’s degree at Trinity by completing a further year following the undergraduate program. A full list of available postgraduate programs is available here: https://www.tcd.ie/courses/postgraduate/

Students who study the full 5 year MAI course also have an internship option in their fourth year. This unique programme is designed to give students industrial experience, prepare them for professional careers, and expose them to state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge research in the fields of engineering. Additionally, all graduates are entitled to a 12-month work visa in Ireland providing students with the opportunity to gain international work experience.

Work along with study

Non-EU students registered on a full-time education course lasting for at least one academic year can work part-time, up to a maximum of 20 hours per week during term time and up to 40 hours per week during term breaks. On registration with the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB), students will receive a passport stamp reflecting this entitlement. Further information can be found at www.icosirl.ie/eng/student_information/working_in_ireland
If the student takes up this route, he/she may be able to cover some of their living expenses in Ireland.

Also, the Careers Advisory Service at Trinity advertises many work experience and internship opportunities on their website. They also send out weekly emails with updated job listings for which students may apply. Students can also search for summer internship opportunities. Please see the Careers Advisory Service website for more details: http://www.tcd.ie/Careers/

“When I decided to move to Dublin, I knew it was an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone, challenge myself and be independent. The course exceeded my expectations, teaching me skills beyond computer engineering that have helped me develop as a person. This includes confidence, self-discipline and team working skills. By enrolling in Trinity, you get not only a supportive faculty and the state of art facilities, but also picturesque surroundings and company of some of the most wonderful people from around the globe. And of course, the Irish charm and friendliness, both inside the college and within the Georgian heart of Dublin serves as the perfect icing on the cake.”

Life in Dublin

With a fast-growing, cosmopolitan population of just over one million, Dublin is a vibrant European capital city. Located at the heart of Dublin, Trinity sits at the very center of everything the city has to offer. Blending a high-energy, multinational professional culture with traditional Irish warmth and hospitality, Dublin has sprawling parks, cozy cafes and quirky restaurants for the daytime, with Victorian pubs, fashionable clubs, music gigs and theatre by night.

“Trinity really is one of the best universities in the world. I couldn’t have asked for more; the teachers are so helpful to me, whenever there is anything I need or didn’t understand they are always there without delay. The Trinity program granted me an international perspective I would not otherwise have got. I got to study different subjects from Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology which expanded my knowledge in Computers and Electronics Engineering. Presently, I am in fourth year, but I already feel like I am prepared for the professional career ahead. The facilities are just amazing and the place feels homely. Trinity offers an intellectual environment that is matched in very few other places in the world. I have made really good friends here and many of them are among my best-friends now; I think it is because we are all united by work. The Trinity experience is definitely one that I will never regret. It is quite possibly one of the best decisions of my life and I’m so grateful that I got the opportunity to study here. I would recommend Trinity College Dublin to anybody.”
