About

The Geotechnical Engineering with Structural Engineering course at the Atlantic Technological University is for students who would like to conduct their research thesis in Geotechnical Engineering and the MEng in Structural Engineering with Geotechnical Engineering for students wishing to conduct their research thesis in Structural Engineering. 

Overview

Graduates of these programmes can work as design or site engineers in the areas of Geotechnical / Structural Engineering at a level of responsibility appropriate to the increasingly complex and technical roles currently required by industry.

The Geotechnical Engineering with Structural Engineering course at the Atlantic Technological University has two primary aims:

  • To provide upskilling to existing civil engineers working or intending to work in the Geotechnical / Structural Engineering domains,
  • To provide a means for graduate engineers to meet the educational requirement for Chartered Engineer membership of Engineers Ireland, while at the same time developing advanced skills in Geotechnical and Structural Engineering. This is particularly relevant to Level 8 Civil Engineering graduates already in employment who wish to become Chartered Engineers.

Engineers Ireland will only accredit programmes once the first group of students has completed the programme. This is a new programme and IT Sligo will be seeking accreditation for this programme immediately after the first class has graduated in 2022. Engineers Ireland is a signatory to the Washington Accord, thus facilitating mutual recognition of accredited programmes among signatory countries.
