Engineering - Electronic Engineering - Research
The Electronic Engineering Department offers a structured Research Masters programme in Electronic Engineering. The objective of this programme is to produce high quality graduates with the skills and advanced engineering knowledge to operate as independent researchers and take on leadership roles in research and development both in academia and in industry. Our structured approach to postgraduate education provides students with an excellent foundation in a variety of technical areas that are targeted towards the research area of the student combined with training in research, communication and business skills. We will also encourage engagement with the global research community, in academia and industry, through research visits, internships and attending conferences.
Students complete a thesis on a significant body of research and take a minimum of 10 credits in taught modules from the Structured MSc programme. (at least 5 in generic/transferable modules and at least 5 in subject specific/advanced specialist modules)
Modules can be completed at any stage of the programme. Students must complete a module in the semester they wish to be assessed. Each module can only be taken once in the programme and credit cannot be achieved for completing the same material in 2 different modules.
All candidates should have obtained a 2.1 in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or a degree in a related area. Applicants may be required to attend for interview as part of the admissions process. Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.
Research applications are generally accepted at any time

Post Course Info
The programme offered by Electronic Engineering provide students with an excellent foundation for a wide variety of careers. The core of the structured programme is the research programme that will be undertaken by the student. This will allow the student to gain deep insight and expertise in their specific focus area. In engineering, there is normally a strong correspondence between our research areas and career opportunities – be it in industry or continuing in the academic arena.
The taught element of the structured programme broadens the skills and perspective of the student with modules on entrepreneurship, communication and presentation skills. The experience our postgraduate research students will be enhanced by the Department's excellent and in-depth relationships with industry partners nationally and internationally.
