Engineering - Civil Engineering - Environment & Energy

This programme aims to develop advanced analytical, design, assessment, appraisal and research skills in Civil Engineering in the specialist areas of environmental and energy engineering. Graduates will be well equipped to meet the challenges of the modern Civil Engineering based environmental and energy engineering industries, providing, protecting and enhancing the natural environment and the related physical infrastructure that underpins society; in this context a broad range of environmental and energy engineering topics are addressed from the local level to the global scale. The programme content seeks to reflect current and likely future practice and trends in environmental and energy engineering analysis, design, and assessment.

The programme of study is designed to progress your qualifications in the following ways:

• Deepen your technical knowledge, skills and competences in the specialised field of Environmental and Energy Engineering;

• Develop your ability to carry out in depth research in a chosen field of Engineering, to draw conclusions from the research and present research findings;

• Broaden your knowledge in other areas such as Sustainability, Asset and Project Management.

The programme is fully accredited by Engineers Ireland as satisfying the new educational standard for the title Chartered Engineer.
