Engineering - Structural Engineering - Cork Campus

The taught Master of Engineering programmes are designed

• deepen the postgraduate student's technical knowledge,
skills and competences in the field of specialisation

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

• broaden knowledge in other areas such as Sustainability,
Management, and Business

Additionally, the MEng in Structural Engineering programme
will provide preparation for the Institute of Structural Engineers
Professional Practice Examinations by developing structural
analysis and design skills.

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