The Department of Computer Science maintains a strong commitment to postgraduate research, and aims to increase the number of postgraduate student places substantially over the next few years.
We currently have 33 full-time research postgraduate students, most of whom are working towards a PhD.
The Departmental Graduate Handbook describes the basic set-up and regulations associated with the research postgraduate environment here.
A look through our recent MSc. and PhD. graduates will also give you a flavour of the research being done in the department.
The Department's Seminar Series provides postgraduate students with an to give us an update about their latest research. The talks are short (typically 20-30 minutes) and pretty informal. All are welcome to attend.
Interested in doing a research MSc. or Ph.D. with the department? The Irish government has committed significant funding to increase the number of PhD students in the universities. We're always happy to hear from bright students who'd like to take advantage of this.
Typically a postgraduate student will be based on one of our main research labs, or one of the specialist labs. Members of staff also supervise students based in the National Centre for Geocomputation.
