The registered professional title of Chartered Engineer (CEng) is becoming very important for graduate civil engineers. The increasing regulation of the construction industry and the requirement to have competent engineering professionals (i.e. Chartered Engineers) to sign off on construction and civil engineering projects has led to employers seeking graduates who can reach Chartered Engineer status quickly. Research has shown that the employment and salary prospects of Chartered Engineers are significantly improved in comparison to an untitled engineer.
This work-based programme developed in collaboration with Engineers Ireland and employers will allow graduates to meet the Engineers Ireland educational requirements such that students can apply for Chartered Engineer through the further learning route or standard route. The Higher Diploma in Civil Engineer at ATU Galway is accredited by Engineers Ireland as meeting the educational standard for level 8 engineering programmes for ‘Chartered Engineer with further learning’ (CEngFL).
