Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Built Environment Regulation
The programme aims to afford advanced experience, knowledge, and training to fulfil, in part, the onerous and challenging roles, duties and responsibilities associated with a range of Built Environment Regulations in the Irish Construction Industry.
This Postgraduate Diploma is designed for a multidisciplinary cohort across the built environment disciplines e.g. Architecture, Engineering, Building Surveying, Architectural Technology, and Construction Management, among others. A multi-disciplinary cohort will be beneficial to the programme as it will provide a cross-pollination of ideas, shared experiences and appreciation for each other’s roles and responsibilities in the Built Environment.
It is designed to meet the postgraduate and continuing professional development needs of these disciplines, to develop their competence in these areas by facilitating knowledge gained through training and applied experience. It will be particularly beneficial to new entrant graduates who have recently entered the work force in the last one to three years. It will also be beneficial to lifelong learners and more experienced professionals as Continuing Professional Development, up-skilling, retraining, and as a refresher course.
Furthermore, the programme can be undertaken on a module-by-module basis, if so desired, by accumulating credits. Alternatively, a programme of shorter duration can be commenced, with the view to continuing to complete the Postgraduate Diploma and / or MSc in Built Environment Regulation at some point in the future. This flexibility is designed to accommodate an adult working population. The difference between this qualification and the MSc in Built Environment Regulation is that there is no research capstone module requirement.
Students can choose to take the course as full time (1 year) or part-time (2 years).
The programme is CABE accredited.
