Trinity College Dublin now offers courses in a range of civil specialisms, including environmental engineering, transportation engineering, structural and geotechnical engineering and sustainable energy
Sponsored

Trinity College Dublin is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world and is the highest-ranked university in Ireland. Trinity School of Engineering continuously benchmarks itself against the top international engineering schools, with outstanding teaching by engineers who are at the forefront of their fields worldwide. The course was nominated as the ‘Best New Course’ by Postgrad Ireland in 2013 and ‘Best Engineering Course’ in 2015.

Trinity offers full-time (one year) and part-time (over two or three years) MSc courses in our range of civil-engineering specialisms. So it is possible to work full-time and do the course as a part-time option – in fact, about half of our students are registered as part-time students. The degree programme is divided into three parts: two semesters of taught courses with an average of 12 lectures per week and a major dissertation undertaken during the second half of the course. It offers excellent career prospects both in Ireland and abroad.

The following are the range of civil-engineering MSc courses run by the university. The closing date for applications for the 2016/’17 academic year is 30 June 2016. Informal inquiries can also be made via civeng@tcd.ie or to +353 1 896 1457.
