Engineers Ireland
The MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering programme is at NFQ Level 9 and has been designed to meet the accreditation standard of Engineers Ireland at the Chartered level. Candidates who enter the programme with the relevant Level 8 qualification accredited by Engineers Ireland or recognised under the Washington Accord will have fully satisfied the education requirement for Chartered Engineer status on graduation with the MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering*.

However, it is important to note that those candidates (Irish and/or International) who enter via the RPL process or have a degree qualification that is not accredited by Engineers Ireland/Washington Accord will have to subsequently confirm with Engineers Ireland on a case-by-case basis if they have fully met the education requirement for Chartered Engineer.
