The Master of Engineering at University of Galway is part of an integrated (Bachelors + Masters) 4+1 programme of study, meeting the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation. Successfully completing this course, as part of an accredited 4+1 structure, will allow you to achieve the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status upon graduation.
The ME programme on its own is a 60 ECTS one academic year course of study. Graduates with an honours degree in a cognate Engineering discipline may be eligible to take the ME. This will be of interest to graduates who wish to study more advanced topics in their core engineering discipline. Applicants wishing to use the ME programme as part of their CEng certification should be aware that professional accreditation is assessed by the Engineering Councils on the basis of the aggregate periods of study, and not on the Masters year alone. Candidates need to satisfy themselves that their undergraduate degree meets the relevant standards.
