Electronic Information Engineering (M.Sc.)

Course Description

Course Information

This is a one year full time postgraduate course designed to provide graduate engineers with specialist understanding of modern computational products and systems. There is no aspect of modern life that is not now altered by information processing engines. Examples include digital assistants (speech recognition and synthesis), automotive (remote sensing and electronic control systems), the economy (quantitative automated trading), entertainment (audiovideo streaming and cinema visual effects), health (medical imaging), science (computational biology/geography/chemistry/photography) and the digital humanities. The principles enabling the design of this new wave of products are embodied in the discipline of Information Engineering. This course allows graduates to specialise in fundamental theory and applications relating to the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in engineering and science.

Course Organisation

This M.Sc. course is a full-time one year postgraduate course and consists of taught modules and a project amounting to 90 credits. The taught component comprises modules totalling 50 credits. In the first semester, students pursuing the course must take modules worth at least 25 credits, and in the second semester they take the balance of the credits.

Job Opportunity Potential

If you are an international student studying at Trinity, you might be considering internship and graduate work in Ireland, in your home country, or elsewhere. This section provides information for Non EU students on working in Ireland during and after your studies. For information and resources to support an international job search, see our Devex resource which includes international job search advice and information.

Employers value candidates who have more to offer than a good degree with high grades. They look for students who are well rounded and who have experience outside the classroom. Search for and take advantage of opportunities to gain experience, develop your skill set, and gain a clearer picture of what you like and don't like in terms of career options.

For example, you can get involved in some of the many student clubs and societies in college, volunteer or get a part time job. Remember that voluntary work is as valuable as paid work on your CV or resume - it's a great way to demonstrate your skills to future employers. Have a look at the TCD Civic Engagement website and check out volunteering opportunities in Ireland and abroad.
