Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

International Students
International Students are advised to contact the WIT International Office before submitting an application via PAC. The International Office staff will give guidelines on how to apply and use PAC. The International also assists the Programme Leader and the Head of Department in their assessment of each International applicant’s educational qualifications and suitability for the program.

This includes a detailed review of all relevant documentation and in many cases interviews (e.g. via Skype).   Applicants whose first language is not English must submit evidence of competency in English.

Engineers Ireland
The MSc in Construction Project Management 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 program with the relevant Level 8 qualification accredited by Engineers Ireland or recognized under the Washington Accord will have fully satisfied the education requirement for Chartered Engineer status on graduation with the MSc in Construction Project Management*.

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.
