Changes to Courses
CK600 BE (Hons) Engineering or Master of Engineering (Integrated ME)
CK600 Engineering is the entry point to all of the Engineering programmes at UCC. After completing a common first year, students choose their second-year pathway from one of the following:
• Civil, Structural & Environmental Engineering
• Electrical & Electronic Engineering
• Energy Engineering
• Process & Chemical Engineering
Each of the pathways in second year provides students with the option of completing the four year BE course or the five year ME course. To meet the educational requirements for Professional Chartered Engineer a Masters (ME) degree is needed. At the end of third year, students can choose to carry on the BE with one further year of study or to transfer to the ME with two further years of study, subject to achieving an average mark of 50%. Fourth year ME students develop their core knowledge to an advanced level in the first semester before undertaking an eight-month industrial placement to develop further their skills in an industrial environment. The major component of the final year is an individual research project carried out over the year.
