  • Do you have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Applied Physics, Computer Science and are eager to specialize with advanced research work in electrical and mechanical engineering leading to the PhD Degree?

  • Are you passionate about exploring the unknown by focusing in topics of research we offer via our faculty research strengths?

  • Do you want to learn how to independently invent and advance technology via the close guidance of an experienced PhD faculty advisor?

  • Are you driven to deep thinking theoretical work or a balance of design theory and experimental hands-on work?

  • Do you want to strengthen your technical credentials with a PhD degree to enhance your corporate promotion opportunities to the highest technical level within your organization?

  • Are you looking to be a long-term visionary and technology leader with management aspirations?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then a PhD degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)or Mechanical Engineering is for you.

Admission to EEE postgraduate PhD level is based on completion of a Bachelors degree and/or Masters degree in engineering or science at an international standard. PhD positions are advertised by the department and typically carry full financial support for the student over the typical 3 years of intense study. You are encouraged to directly contact the possible research advisor for potential PhD student openings within a given lab. Applicants are also encouraged to submit Graduate Record Exam (GRE) general and subject (Maths, Physics) exam results. In addition, copies of BS/MS level thesis work and resulting publications are also encouraged in the submission material.

Application for this programme is on-line at http://www.pac.ie/. For full details of the application procedure go to the study@ucc webpage.

Immediately after an on-line application is made, all required documentation must be sent in hard copy to The Postgraduate Applications Centre, 1, Courthouse Square, Galway, Ireland.
