Environmental Engineering is that branch of engineering concerned with the application of scientific and engineering principles for the protection and improvement of the environmental quality of the world in which we live. Environmental Engineers work on issues of sustainability, provide safe and secure drinking water, collect, treat and properly dispose of wastewater and other wastes, design flood protection measures, maintain or improve air and noise quality, design sustainable urban drainage systems, clean up contaminated land and groundwater, and help communities and industry minimise pollution, among many other activities.

It is most commonly a distinct and specialist engineering discipline within the Civil Engineering profession and it is in this context that this course has been developed.


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.


Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Engineering (Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications)

Further Studies

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.
