Structured PhD Programmes

Structured Education Programmes

All UCC PhD students register on a structured programme. This means that students are required to take a number of taught modules alongside their research. The module requirements are shown in the table below. Tyndall leads an exciting new research driven structured PhD programme, PhD Engineering Science. The programme recognizes that today’s engineering and science graduates need a wide range of skills in order to build successful careers in academia, research or industry. The doctoral training is inter-institutional.
