Details Details
 

The aim of the Structured PhD in Computer Science is to provide the student with an opportunity to carry out a significant body of research work with support from the teaching component of the programme. The programme will offer both academic modules to enhance the student's specialist knowledge, and transferable and generic skills modules. These modules will add significantly to the PhD experience by broadening the skill base of the candidate.

The first step to applying is to identify a potential supervisor; this involves deciding on a general research area that you are interested in and then contacting a member of the department’s staff that is specialising in that area. More information on research in the department can be found at https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/computer-science/our-research.

Research postgraduates are typically (though not exclusively) funded during their research. Support varies depending on the source, but funding can include payment of fees, a salary and travel expenses. Please note that all funding programmes are highly competitive, and most are contingent on the applicant securing high marks in their primary degree.

Research students can also register to work jointly with the Department of Computer Science and one of the following Maynooth University research institutes: National Centre for Geocomputation, An Foras Feasa, the Hamilton Institute, the Callan Institute, and the Innovation Value Institute. Please see the entries for these institutes for more details of the research topics available.
