The new Engineering Support Centre concentrates on physics, electronics and mechanics for first year students to help them get the best start possible in their studies. Support is available in small groups or on a 1-2-1 basis to assist students with their subject modules, working in conjunction with
what they are learning in class to reinforce their understanding of the topic.

IT Sligo students can avail of free online language support. This programme of support is suitable for any student for whom English is not their first language. The trainer will tailor sessions, supports and resources to suit individuals’ specific needs based on their level of fluency.

Earn Your Way To An Engineering Degree

IT Sligo continues to innovate for new Leaving Certificate Graduates

IT Sligo, Ireland’s leading provider of online education, has just launched an innovative new degree for young people completing the leaving certificate. In this new Work-Based Degree in Mechatronic Systems Engineering, that can be taken from anywhere in Ireland, the students spend a full three years in a manufacturing or engineering work-place near their own home, earning as they learn, and taking classes online. This new form of degree combines the best of our campus-based engineering degree, our long experience in online education since 2002, and the apprenticeship (on-the-job) learning approach, to build a degree that is more affordable, more convenient and will build better engineers.

Mechatronics, which includes Robotics, is a combination of Mechanical, Electronic and Software Engineering and these engineers, who build the automated systems that drive the most advanced manufacturing facilities in Ireland, are in short supply and in huge demand. Successful graduates can also proceed to our online level 8 degree in Mechatronics.

Further information is available at itsligo.ie/SG335 – Interested students are advised to contact IT Sligo directly through this form bit.ly/MechWBLform
