At a gala evening in the Convention Centre Dublin, ATU Sligo won the award in the ‘Third Level – CPD’ category for its online and flexible Master of Engineering in Road and Transport Engineering at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards.

While the university was also recognised by having their online and flexible Master of Science in Project Management also shortlisted as a finalist, there could be only one winner.

In 2021, Engineers Ireland approved this Master of Engineering in Road and Transport Engineering for full accreditation to Chartered Engineer level for graduates with an accredited Level 8 degree. This part-time online blended programme is the first online Master’s programme in Ireland to be accredited at the education standard required for the registration of Chartered Engineers and was developed in partnership with the Department of Transport and the Local Authority Services National Training Group (LASNTG), targeting civil engineers working in the road and transport engineering sector.

Course Coordinator for the winning programme Dr. Brian McCann stated: “This award provides further recognition of the academic integrity and flexibility of delivery for learners as evidenced by the degree’s full Chartered Engineer status awarded by Engineers Ireland in 2021”.
