Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and Engineering

The main aim of the course is to give you the skills to take projects from design to reality. The course will provide you with a broadly based management and technological education so that you are capable of recognising, evaluating and solving constructional and business problems associated with building and civil engineering projects. The course will teach you how to adapt to technological change in a competitive industrial climate. Managing construction projects requires a high level of organization, both commercially and technologically. Construction management prepares you to systematically plan, organise and manage resources such as finance, labour, plant and materials. Construction engineering gives you the skills necessary to implement processes and methods of construction to produce a quality building in an efficient and safe manner.

Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical & Biochemical Engineering

This programme is the only course of its kind in the Mid-West and Western regions of the country. Process engineering is the central area of expertise underpinning many important, sustainable industries and businesses within both the Irish and global economies. Such enterprises include: biopharmaceuticals, fuels, chemicals, and drug manufacture, energy production, food and beverage processing, environmental waste remediation, and electronic component manufacture. The Irish pharmaceutical, chemical and biochemical industries have been primarily responsible for the recent consistent increases in the national export performance, proving these sectors to be stable and resilient, even in harsh economic conditions. In all of these areas, the chemical/biochemical engineer is of key importance both in the design and operation of the processing systems and in the development and manufacture of novel products. The IChemE accreditation ensures international professional recognition for graduates of the degree.
