MSc in Built Environment Regulation GMIT Bursary

Closing Date for DASBE Bursary is December 3

The new MSc in Built Environment Regulation aims to afford advanced experience, knowledge, and training to fulfil, in part, the onerous and challenging roles, duties and responsibilities associated with the built environment regulations in the Irish Construction Industry. Internationally, this is a unique programme in the postgraduate space.

Programme Chair and lecturer Irene Hayden says “Extensive consultation with professional bodies and a dedicated steering committee in this programme’s design identified the gap in this training and learning. This MSc will enable practitioners in the field to gain expertise in specific regulatory areas. It will provide specialist knowledge of the Building Control Regulations and the Building Control Management System, in conjunction with the National Building Control and Market Surveillance Office. It is designed for architects, engineers, building surveyors, architectural technologists, as well as builders and construction managers, to name a few. It provides a flexible, mentored, certified and experiential learning route”.

The course will commence in January 2022 and will be delivered in a blended format (partially online and partially on-campus). There are two Special Purpose Awards (SPAs) embedded in the Master’s course- the Certificate in Built Environment Regulation and the Certificate in Fire Safety, both of which are level 9
“We welcome applicants on a module-by-module basis which can be accumulated over time to achieve a full qualification”, adds Ms Hayden. Applications close on December 3. For further information, please contact irene.hayden@gmit.ie
