  • DT027 - Civil Engineering

What are my career opportunities?

DT066 is the stepping stone to an exciting and rewarding career as a professional engineer.  DIT's Engineering degrees are accredited by Engineers Ireland and our qualifications are recognised worldwide. 

What other options do I have after completion?

Students who have reached the appropriate honours standard may have access to a wide range of Masters Degrees and Research Degrees in DIT and elsewhere in Higher Education.

Learning Outcomes: What will I Study?

DT066 Students learn fundamental  principles (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry), Engineering Applications (Mechanics and Electrotechnolgy) and Applied Skills (Technical Graphics, Computing and Professional Development).  Throughout the year the theoretical subjects are supported by laboratories and a comprehensive programme of design projects including a robot building project, a bridge building project and an energy efficiency project.
