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.
