ATU Sligo secured a national award for its online and flexible Master of Engineering in Road and Transport Engineering at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards.
While the university’s online Master of Science in Project Management was also shortlisted as a finalist.
The awards provide an opportunity for the industry to showcase and reward best practice across a range of construction disciplines and project categories along with third level educational providers.
These programmes are provided by the Department of Civil Engineering and Construction at ATU Sligo. Over the last nine years, this department has evolved from having one online programme to over 30, with online student numbers increasing fourfold over the last five years.
Head of Department of Civil Engineering and Construction at ATU Sligo Trevor McSharry says its great to have two programmes shortlisted at the largest construction awards event nationally, and very special to win the third level category and reinforces the direction the department is taking.
