Home to quantum physics wizard John Bell and the Nobel Laureate Ernest Walton, Ireland is known for its creative and innovative culture, staying at the forefront of engineering and technology education as well as achievements.

In 1841, John Hollan from Ireland invented the world’s first submarine. As early as in 1906, Alice Perry from Galway in the west of Ireland became the world's first female engineering graduate. The world's first 72-inch telescope was also built in Ireland.

No wonder, 32% of all Indian students in Ireland are enrolled in engineering and science courses. Level-wise, 35% of all Indian students in Ireland are enrolled in undergraduate courses, while 65% of them go there to pursue masters or Ph.D. level studies.

Ranked among the safest countries in the world, Ireland is one of the most popular studies abroad destinations for female Indian students. About 30% of Indian students in the country are females.

An Irish engineering degree promises you a bright future anywhere in the world. All of the top 10 technology companies worldwide are located in Ireland today.

“Education in engineering is of paramount importance to the future of humanity”, says Dr. James C Robinson, the founder of the Kepling Institute which is a centre of excellence in Ireland for advanced scientific and engineering computation.

Since Ireland is an English-speaking country, Indian students find it easier to adjust there. Voted twice as the friendliest country in the world, Ireland is a place where one can look forward to a pleasant international student experience.

So, if you are looking forward to going abroad for earning an engineering qualification, you should seriously consider Ireland as your study destination.
