REGULATIONS FOR THE DIPLOMA IN CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING STUDIES
Note: This diploma programme is available only to students from partner Chinese universities, with whom University College Cork signs a bilateral agreement under Statute 263 of the National University of Ireland. Having studied for three years at a partner Chinese university, students will study for one year at University College Cork, taking the diploma programme to the value of 60 credits as outlined below.
To be admitted students will normally be required to:
(a) successfully complete and pass credits equivalent to three full academic years' study of their degree programme at a partner Chinese university with whom University College Cork has a bilateral agreement; and
(b) satisfy English language proficiency requirements as set out by University College Cork for non-EU students.
To be considered for the award of the Diploma in Civil and Environmental Engineering Studies, a student must have satisfactorily attended, for at least a full academic year, undergraduate modules to the value of 60 credits as part of a programme of study agreed by the School of Engineering and the partner Chinese university and subject to timetabling and other constraints. Between 40 and 60 of these credits should be chosen from undergraduate Civil and Environmental Engineering modules, and must include CE4002 Project (10 credits); modules are selected in consultation with and with the approval of the Head of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UCC. Students may take up to 20 credits from other undergraduate modules in other subjects with the approval of the department/school offering the module(s). Where a module has pre-requisites (as specified in the module description), a student must satisfy these pre-requisites by demonstrating, to the satisfaction of the School, that a similar module has been passed in the partner Chinese university. The full programme of study is subject to final agreement by the School of Engineering and the partner Chinese university.
Module descriptions are contained in the Book of Modules, 2012/2013.
Full details of regulations governing Examinations for each programme will be contained in the Marks and Standards 2013 Book, and for each module in the Book of Modules, 2012/2013.
