Civil Engineering. studied at the Atlantic Technological University, is probably the best known type of engineering because the work of the civil engineer is clearly visible to us every day.


Have you ever wondered how clean water gets to the tap? Or how 15-storey buildings and 3 km long suspension bridges stay standing? Or What caused the Tower of Pisa to lean?

Civil Engineering. studied at the Atlantic Technological University, is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It involves the planning, design and construction of facilities that we require for everyday living, industry and transport. As a civil engineer, you will have a creative, diverse, and challenging career and will be making a real contribution to the needs of both modern and developing societies all over the world. 

If you like variety, civil engineering offers a huge range of projects on which you could be employed: roads, bridges, pipelines, buildings, sewage treatment plants, dams, jetties, etc.  

Job Opportunities

Graduates will have the ability to take responsibility at a higher technician/middle management level with engineering projects either in a design office or on a construction site. The most common areas of employment are with civil engineering consultancies and local authorities where most of the work is office-based but with opportunities to spend time on site as well, and with civil and building contractors, where most of the work is site-based.


The programme has been accredited by Engineers Ireland to enable graduates to apply for associate member grade and gain the title of 'Associate Engineer'.
