We have developed the first Bicycle Engineering Academy in the world delivering an international programme that can be adapted into the many areas evolving within the industry.
We are registered to the international accreditation body City and Guilds of London institute and have affiliated with Universities to enable our students to seamlessly access third level education. We have authority to author new and exciting bicycle qualifications in house at the academy which no other institute has access to at this time.
Our programmes can lead to degree level (BEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering & Transport Management) for the first time in the history of the industry bringing the bicycle into the recognised category of “Vehicle” for professional studies
Mechanical engineering in manufacturing 3850 L3 Diploma award
The overall objective of the programme is to give as much engineering content to the student whilst keeping them engadged in a subject matter that is both intereting to them & has pathways to employment or self employment as a result.
Although the accreditations are well established with City & Guilds we have re designed many of the practicle excersies with the gudence of C&G to enable the student to design & bespoke hand manufactured bicycle that they will own at the end of the course whilst delivering the outcomes neccesary for the qualifications.
The combination of the four engineering qualifications combined with the large amount of practicle skills the student aquires during the 40 week bike design & build is fast becoming recognised as the foremost bicycle engineering training programme within the industry.
The Bicycle engineering 40 week traineeship programme gives an excellent foundation with many added practicle benefits for a student to enter 3rd level education with a great deal to offer the institution.
Added course content focusing on industry experience & development:
Reasearch & development classes
RTA accident report writing (in conjunction with an garda siochana) & law society
