The degree in Environmental Science and Engineering is a new integrated five-year course consisting of a four year BSc plus an additional year of study leading to either a Masters in Engineering (MAI) specialising in Environmental Engineering or a MSc in Applied Environmental Science. The course is taught by scientists in the School of Natural Sciences and engineers from the School of Engineering. It arises from a unique collaboration between two leading Trinity Schools that have expertise across a wide range of subject areas from Environmental Science to Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering and is one of the first of its kind in Ireland and internationally.

The degree structure is designed to provide for the needs of students with an interest in these emerging, multi-disciplinary professional and academic fields. The course provides students with a fundamental grounding in natural sciences and engineering, and in the applied skills required to develop sustainable solutions for major societal and environmental challenges.

The BSc /MAI/MSc degree programme is based on two foundation years of environmental science and engineering modules, providing students with a firm grounding in the principles common to both disciplines, followed by three years of specialisation (in either environmental science or environmental engineering). The programme offers students the opportunity to tailor their degree in accordance with their academic results, interests, aptitudes and emerging career aspirations.
