Agriculture, Engineering & Science -University College Dublin

The Agriculture, Engineering & Science program is offered through University College Dublin (UCD). This program offers courses from three of UCD?s colleges: the College of Agriculture, Food Science & Veterinary Medicine; the College of Engineering & Architecture; the College of Health Sciences; the College of Science. Students must choose one main college (Agriculture, Food Science & Veterinary Medicine, Engineering & Architecture, Health Sciences, Science) in which to take four courses, but may take one or two electives from other colleges. Popular subject areas include Agriculture and Engineering. Of particular note is UCD's Introduction to Scientific Research course.

While students in this program take a majority of their courses from the Agriculture, Engineering & Science program, they may also select 1 or 2 courses from the Business, Social Sciences & Humanities program at no additional charge.

Courses are taught by UCD faculty and ISA students enroll directly with local and international students. All courses are taught in English.

ISA students studying in the Agriculture, Engineering & Science program at UCD can apply for an unpaid summer internship in Engineering following their academic program. This internship is offered through University College Dublin and students participating in the program will do so through UCD, not ISA. Please contact the Ireland Site Specialist for more information about this internship opportunity.
