CSU civil engineering has been named the best in the world in a ranking by UWE Ireland.
The Irish Times named the Irish Engineering College as the best engineering college in the country and the top engineering college for Ireland in a new survey of more than 200,000 Irish students.
The survey of the best universities in the Republic of Ireland by Uwe Boggs and Associates in partnership with UWE was conducted by UEEI Ireland.
“The survey also included a survey of Irish students who had completed a four-year course and those who had only completed a two-year college course.”
We asked students about their preferences and the course they preferred, which in the case of this survey is a four year college course, as opposed to the two- and four- year course options, and the most commonly cited reasons for their preference was the desire to study at a leading engineering school,” said UWEI Ireland managing director, David Kelly.”
There are a number of strong contenders in the field and the survey shows that the best courses in Ireland can help to make the world’s best engineering education even better.
“The Irish Engineering colleges ranking includes a survey that was conducted between March and June this year.
The UWEU survey also showed that in addition to engineering, the Irish College of Engineering had the most number of engineering students, with more than 100,000.
This means that the Irish Colleges of Technology have the highest number of students in Ireland in engineering.”
These figures are encouraging as the Irish colleges have had a number the year before in the top 10 places in the UK and the UK has a large number of colleges that offer a bachelor of engineering degree,” said Mr Kelly.
In a separate survey, the UWEUI asked students whether they would recommend to a prospective employer if they were offered a job.
The most common answer was yes, followed by “I do not know” and “I am not sure”.”
The majority of students did not know the candidates or were not sure about their skills.
A very small number of people indicated that they would not consider an offer,” he added.”
One in five people who responded to this survey indicated that their employer does not pay any fees for its students to take engineering courses.
“A spokeswoman for UWE said the survey had “shown that a great deal of investment is being made in the Irish engineering sector and we are proud to support this.””
The Irish engineering industry is growing rapidly, and with a strong and growing engineering workforce, it is important that students have access to the knowledge and skills to become successful engineers,” she said.”
This is why we work with leading companies such as GE and Siemens to support their engineering and research workforce.””
Irish Engineering has become the most popular engineering degree in Ireland and is the second-best in the European Union, with over 25,000 students pursuing their course at a time,” she added.UWE said it has also increased its investment in engineering programmes to support the future of Ireland’s engineering sector.”
Our Engineering Research Excellence Framework (ERF) is a significant step forward to support our engineering sector, which will be the largest in the EU in 2021 and employ over 80,000 people,” said Ms Kelly.
