13 March 2018
TCD's Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
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 a range of civil-engineering specialisms. So it is possible to work full-time and do the course as a part-time option. 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 2018/19 academic year is June 30 2018. Informal inquiries can also be made via email@example.com or to +353 1 896 1457.
