TGI-Telecommunications Graduate Initiative

Telecommunications Graduate Initiative


The Telecommunications Graduate Initiative (TGI) is being undertaken by a consortium of leading Irish Universities and Institutes of Technology to greatly enhance the experience of PhD students in the broad area of telecommunications. Funded by the Higher Education Authority under cycle 5 of the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutes (PRTLI), TGI is led by Trinity College Dublin in partnership with UCD, UCC, NUI Maynooth, DCU, DIT, Waterford IT, Queens University Belfast and the University of Ulster. TGI is designed to produce graduates with an advanced education in telecommunications, and will see students offered a range of more than 30 taught courses in wired and wireless network networks. Classes will be given by experts of global standing in areas like Cloud Computing, Network Architecture, Antenna Design and Congestion Control. There will also be opportunities to develop business skills through modules on Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

At University College Cork three PhD students in Computer Science have been recruited and are pursuing their doctoral research on topics in cloud computing, sensor data management, and wireless sensor and actuator networks.
