Course description

This new and innovative programme has been created in partnership between the School of Engineering and Environmental Science in order to satisfy a current shortfall in Environmental Engineers in Ireland. Environmental Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. Environmental engineers design, build and maintain clean water supplies and waste-water treatment systems, waste disposal methods, as well as hydroelectric stations and wind farms. IT Sligo has built up significant expertise in the field of water engineering and Environmental Science. The course uses this expertise and is delivered through a blend of formal lectures and practical classes. Students are introduced during the first two years to civil and environmental engineering areas of structural, hydraulic, geotechnical and highway engineering as well as project and site management.In the third year significantly more emphasis is placed on environmental matters. Written and verbal communication skills are continuously developed through presentations and technical report writing. It is hoped that the course will be recognised as meeting the educational standard required for Associate Engineer Membership of Engineers Ireland in due course. Once this occurs your IT Sligo qualification will be recognised in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States, thus offering exciting opportunities for work and travel abroad
