The ME in Civil Engineering at NUI Galway is a 60 ECTS full-time taught Masters programme, starting in September and running until early June of the following year. The programme sits at Level 9 in the Irish qualifications system and has been designed to meet the educational requirements necessary for progression to Chartered Engineer status with Engineers Ireland. An application to Engineers Ireland for accreditation is currently being assessed (May 2015). NUI Galway has a long tradition of producing high quality graduates from its accredited Level 8 Bachelor degree (BE) in Civil Engineering. This new programme builds on this experience, educating Civil Engineers to even higher standards and accelerating them to positions of leadership in industry.
