€300 per 5 credit module (incl. exam fee)

Please note: Part-time students who are in a position to attend by day may take modules on the programme at any time.

Delivery

Part-time by day attendance – shared delivery with full-time students, timetabled within the usual 9am  -6pm working day. 

Course Structure

This course is offered under the ACCS scheme. ACCS is an acronym for “Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Modules”. This scheme allows students instead of studying an entire course - to study one or more modules of that course. Modules passed, are certified individually, and can be accumulated, leading to an award of a Degree. The accumulation of sufficient credits for the award of the BEng is expected to involve a minimum of two years part-time study and the course modules are offered on that basis.

Award

Higher Certificate in Engineering in Civil Engineering  (Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications).

Course Structure

The course is offered under the ACCS scheme. The accumulation of sufficient credits for the award of the Higher Certificate is expected to involve an average of three years part-time study and the course modules are offered on that basis as follows:

CCIVE_6 Year 1
Modules from Stage 1:

Topics typically include Mathematics, Engineering Science, Engineering Communication, Land Surveying, and Construction.

CCIVE_6 Year 2
Modules from Stage 1 and modules from Stage 2: Topics typically include Applied Mechanics, Health & Safety  (Stage 1), Mathematics, Civil Engineering Materials, Land Surveying Control, Structural Design, Civil & Structural Engineering Construction, Professional Studies (Stage 2).

CCIVE_6 Year 3
Modules from Stage 2:

Topics typically include Practical Land Surveying, Structural Engineering, Structural Design, and Hydraulics and Hydrology.

Higher Certificate graduates are eligible to apply for the BEng in Civil Engineering (Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications).
 

BEng (Ord.) graduates may be eligible to apply for Honours Civil and Structural Engineering Degree courses (NFQ Level 8). The Engineers Ireland Graduate Diploma is also a possible route of progression to full membership of Engineers Ireland for those holding the appropriate minimum entry requirements.
