    If the mods feel this would be better placed in the postgraduates section or somewhere please do. Just thought i'd get a better response here.

    Got left off there at christmas, after working in a small consultancy since i qualified in May, decided now i might as well go back to college as there's no work. Looking at a Masters in Renewable Energy (or maybe structural design). I have a H2.2 in Structural Engineering and have talked to head of departments in UCC and Trinity but they said i'm unlikely to get a place. Dundalk IT (The home of renewable energies in Ireland????) said I had a good chance. Haven't tried University of Ulster yet. Does anyone know of anymore such courses in Ireland preferably, or on the quality of the one in Dundalk? I know there's distance learning in Loughborough available also.

    Any replies/suggestions would be great,

    I'm about 15% through the distance masters in Loughborough. I'd say you'd have a good chance of getting in to most of those, there are people from many different areas of science and engineering on the course.
    The course is interesting and the workload managable but you do have to push yourself to stay on top of it.
    I've a friend finishing the masters in Dundalk, it's very similar to the Loughborough one as they licenced the course material from them but they have adapted and changed it to suit their needs.
