Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing civil engineering facilities so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected. All structures from bridges to buildings, harbours to airports, must be able to meet these requirements. Structural Engineers aim to design these structures with safety, economy and elegance.

About The Course:

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 Structural Engineering;
  • Prepare you to undertake the Institution of Structural Engineers Professional Practice Examination by developing your structural analysis and design skills to an appropriate level;
  • 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 and Project Management;
  • You will have achieved the new educational standard required for the title Chartered Engineer.

Aim:

The Master of Engineering in Structural Engineering programme aims to develop advanced analytical, design and research skills in Structural Engineering. Graduates of this programme will be well equipped to meet the challenges of the modern Structural Engineering industry, providing and protecting the physical infrastructure that underpins society; in this context a broad range of infrastructure is addressed.

The programme provides an excellent platform for those intending to undertake the Institution of Structural Engineers Professional Practice Examination and it also allows the student to attain the educational standard required for Chartered Engineer status through an Engineers Ireland accredited programme.

Students who successfully complete 60 credits of the taught modules listed in Stage 1/Semester 1 & Stage 1/Semester 2 and who do not wish to take the 30 credit Research Realisation module in Stage 2/Semester 1 will be eligible for the award of Postgraduate Diploma in Structural Engineering.

Admission Requirements:

Applicants should hold a minimum of a Second Class Honours Grade 2 in a professionally accredited Level 8 Honours Degree Programme in Civil or Structural Engineering. Equivalent recognition may be given through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process on an individual case-by-case basis to candidates who have not achieved this academic standard but who can demonstrate significant relevant professional experience in the discipline of Structural Engineering.

Accreditation: 

The MEng in Structural Engineering is accredited by Engineers Ireland as satisfying the new educational standard for the title Chartered Engineer. It is one of the first programmes in Ireland to receive this accreditation.
