This online work experience takes place from 24th -28th Oct. Students can work away at the modules in their own time.

You can sign up here to find out when the STEPS Engineering Your Future Programme 2023 opens for applications later this year

Everyone who registers their email will be notified as soon as applications open.

STEPS Engineering Your Future 2023 will be open to Transition Year students who commence TY in Sept 2022.

Bachelor Of Engineering In Civil Engineering

Classroom Based, Engineering Course by Institute of Technology Sligo  –  Sligo

Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering; ; ; ; Civil Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. Most people would be surprised by how much Civil Engineering affects their daily lives – from the water that you drink, to the school that you attend, to the energy that powers your mobile phone.

It encompasses all aspects of infrastructure development and is used to improve and protect the environment that we live in. It involves the planning, design and construction of facilities that we require for everyday life such as roads, tunnels, bridges, buildings, offshore oil-platforms, water supply systems, wastewater treatment systems, dams and sustainable energy schemes such as hydroelectric stations and wind farms to name but a few. As a result, Civil Engineering offers diverse and challenging career opportunities.

What do Civil Engineers do? Civil Engineering is a profession that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the built environment that is essential to our society. As you can imagine a Civil Engineer’s work involves solving complex problems in a number of different areas:

Environmental Engineering – water must be treated prior to consumption, waste must be removed and treated so that it does not damage our environment and alternative renewable energy resources must be developed and exploited.

Geotechnical Engineering – understanding the behaviour of soils and rocks to design tunnels and foundations for structures, both onshore and offshore.

Structural Engineering – skyscrapers, bridges, wind turbines and roller coasters must be analysed and designed to safely resist all forces to which they are subjected e.g. earthquake or wind forces.; ; Transportation Engineering – roads, railways, train stations and airports must all be planned and designed to cater for the increasing travel demands of modern society.

Construction Engineering – All of the various kinds of projects listed above must be taken from the design stage through construction to completion by qualified construction professionals.

Course Description:

This course is a blend of formal lectures, relevant practical classes to enhance understanding of topics and projects to apply the information learnt to typical Civil Engineering applications. The early part of the course develops an understanding of science and technology which are the underlying principles of engineering. Gradually the students are introduced to the core Civil Engineering areas of structural, hydraulic, geotechnical and highway engineering as well as project and site management. Written and verbal communication skills are continuously developed through presentations and technical writing.

At the end of this course graduates have the skills demanded by current employers.
