Testimonial Graduate Mark Gilsenan, AECOM I completed this ME programme in September 2012 in order to meet the new minimum education requirement for becoming a chartered engineer. The modules offered as part of the ME programme were both interesting and challenging. One aspect of the ME programme I particularly enjoyed was the research project undertaken in Year Two of the programme. It afforded me the opportunity to conduct extensive research into an area of civil engineering using my own initiative and guided by an academic. I am currently working in Essex, UK in the bridges division of AECOM, a worldwide engineering consultancy, which was advertised through the programme’s social media channels. Having an ME in Civil Engineering was essential in securing this position. I would highly recommend the programme. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]

Testimonial Graduate Karl Corcoran, OCSC Consulting Engineers. I chose the MEngSc Water, Waste & Environmental Engineering because it was the only programme of this nature available in the Republic of Ireland. A mixture of lectures and workshops for several modules also allowed me to gain hands-on experience of some of the computer packages used in the fields of water, waste and environmental engineering. I am currently working with OCSC Consulting Engineers. The position I was hired for, and the main sectors that I am currently working in, were those covered in the MEngSc and having completed this masters certainly helped me to obtain employment in this field. I would highly recommend this programme. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]
