The ME in Electronic & Computer Engineering is a nine-month, full-time Masters programme designed as a follow-on to a Level 8 (Honours) degree in Electronic & Computer Engineering or equivalent. It allows graduates to develop advanced, industry-relevant skills in a range of topics in Electronic & Computer Engineering, providing them with a Level 9 qualification that satisfies Engineers Ireland’s criteria for Chartered status.
Students can choose from a number of advanced technology modules such as: signal and image processing, embedded systems, communications technologies, sensor systems, the Internet of Things, advanced system-on-chip design and artificial intelligence.
A range of Engineering Transferable Skills modules enable students to develop skills in business, innovation, regulatory and research methods, while also providing options in advanced mathematical techniques and information technology. These modules will prepare students for lifelong learning and development in a professional engineering career, either in industry or in a research environment.
The programme will run over nine months from September–May, aligned with the academic year. It will consist of 60 ECTS divided into advanced Electronic & Computer technology modules, engineering transferable skills modules and a 20 ECTS individual project defined in one of the following research areas: signal and image processing, embedded systems, communications systems, consumer electronics, and biomedical electronics.
