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 Angelene Dascanio, USA This Masters is fast-paced, challenging and encompasses the skills required for a career in structural engineering. It includes both general and specialty concepts, for example, I took modules in steel and concrete design, but was also able to take a bridge engineering module to fulfil my interest in that particular field. I was initially drawn to the program because it uniquely incorporates some architecture modules into its curriculum. Also, I found the program framework, 60 credits of coursework and 30 credits of a research project, to be very efficient. During the academic year I was able to focus solely on my coursework, meet with my professors for extra help, and study for examinations. Then, during the summer, my efforts were placed on carrying out a research project with the guidance of a professor in my field of interest. As an international student (from America), I felt welcomed by the faculty and fellow classmates. I experienced a smooth transition between the material I learned as an undergraduate and the material presented on this Masters. As a whole, the program effectively prepared me with the essential skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a structural engineering career. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]

The MLA at UCD opened my eyes and I now see the world around me in a much more exciting, stimulating and interesting way. I gave myself the opportunity of complete immersion in order to ‘get it ‘ as they say. The learning is ongoing, this is a wide and beautiful subject. I found the tutors very supportive and encouraging, some with infectious enthusiasm, which has stayed with me and is definitely the best way to learn. Having completed the MLA in 2006, my practice in Ireland now specialises in smaller scale Architecture and Landscape Architecture. I also tutor on the undergraduate programme at UCD. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]
