The 60-ECTS ME in Civil Engineering is a broad, design-focused, Level 9 programme tailored to meet both the educational requirements for progression to Chartered Engineer status and the diverse needs of a progressive modern civil engineering practice.
Students will strengthen their core knowledge with modules on a range of advanced civil engineering topics, while improving their versatility and leadership potential as engineers through transferrable skills and personal development modules. The integrated-design team project is a unique feature of the programme; students take on a real-world design challenge with support from practising engineers. Research experience is gained through a minor thesis, with access to laboratory facilities in the award-winning Engineering Building, Ireland's largest engineering education facility.
