Programme Overview

Programme Overview

Overview

The registered professional title of Chartered Engineer (CEng) is becoming very important for graduate civil engineers.

The increasing regulation of the construction industry and the requirement to have competent engineering professionals (i.e. Chartered Engineers) to sign off on construction and civil engineering projects has led to employers seeking graduates who can reach Chartered Engineer status quickly.

Research has shown that the employment and salary prospects of Chartered Engineers are significantly improved in comparison to an untitled engineer.

Graduates from the existing 4-year level 8 degrees in the IoT/TU sector do not (typically) meet all the educational requirements (learning outcomes) for the direct pathway to Engineers Ireland’s Chartered Engineer status. These graduates must currently follow a much longer experiential route.

This work-based programme developed in collaboration with Engineers Ireland and employers will allow graduates to meet the Engineers Ireland educational requirements such that students can apply for Chartered Engineer after a minimum of three years experience and an accredited Masters (Level 9).

Currently graduates must have ten years experience and apply through the experiential route.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Shorter professional accreditation pathway as described above is subject to accreditation of the programme by Engineers Ireland.

Accreditation by Engineers Ireland for the programme will be sought after first delivery in September 2021.
