Pg Dip/MSc Telecommunications and Internet Systems
Telecommunications and Distributed Systems (especially the Internet) are rapid growth areas with substantial employment potential, which will continue to expand as these technologies are increasingly introduced to the workplace. Already there is a considerable shortfall in the supply of people who are adequately qualified in these specialisms.
The overall aim of this course is to provide an advanced education in Telecommunications and Distributed Systems; to encourage the development of skills and knowledge levels in these technologies and to make a significant contribution to the pool of professional and technological skills available to support associated industry, teaching and research in Northern Ireland and further afield.
Studentships are available to suitably qualified candidates (UK, EU and overseas) interested in joining one of our Research Groups to pursue a programme of study leading to the degree of Ph.D. Studentships are awarded on a competitive basis. Successful applicants must possess a first or second class honours degree, or equivalent, in Computer Science or a closely related discipline.
Within the Faculty, postgraduate affairs are managed within the Computing & Engineering Research Graduate School (CERGS); the Head of the CERGS is Dr PJ Morrow. Postgraduate students with CERGS are attached to a Research Group within the Computer Science Research Institute. If you are interested in applying for postgraduate study you may first want to identify a suitable supervisor with whom you can discuss and/or develop a suitable project.
Most of the studentships are DEL (Department of Education and Learning) or VCRS (Vice-Chancellor's Research Scheme) awards. Further information on funding and the application form are available at: http://www.ulst.ac.uk/research/resatt.html.
