Course description

CAO CODE : DN 140 If you are interested in the beauty of architectural design, but want to be the person who can make the plans of the designer viable by creating solutions that will see the structures stand the test of time, then this is the course for you. This is a two-part programme focusing primarily on the design of structures, with an initial three-year bachelor’s degree, followed by a two-year master’s degree*. The aim of the programme is to develop an appreciation for architecture and the mathematical ability to challenge the traditional boundaries of structural design. Through the design content of the programme we aim to interlink the thought processes of architects and engineers, encouraging exploration of structural forms and materials. The programme is delivered by the UCD School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering, which has a strong appreciation of design across all of its programmes. The constituent disciplines within the School and the expertise available provide a unique environment for students in which to develop their understanding and appreciation of constructionrelated design. Inter-programme studio-based activities, within the School, allow students to experience interdisciplinary teamwork. This is a much sought after and enjoyable degree. To progress to the ME in Structural Engineering with Architecture students must obtain a Second-Class Honours Grade II or better (degree Grade Point Average (GPA) 2.48 or better) in the BSc in Structural Engineering with Architecture.
