The Lero Graduate School in Software Engineering (LGSSE), the main education initiative of Lero - the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, offers a four-year PhD program provided jointly by the four leading Irish Universities involved in Lero (Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and University of Limerick). The next LGSSE program cycle begins in September 2010.
The first year includes taught modules in research theory and practice, as well as technical software engineering modules. Also during the first year, the candidate will prepare a research proposal that will be the basis for a three-year individual research project.
In this way LGSSE combines the best features of the European and US models of PhD education.
This combination offers several advantages:
- a leading-edge curriculum drawn from four of Ireland’s leading universities,
- access to a critical mass of world-class software researchers who form an expert advisory board for each student,
- generous PhD studentships covering stipend, equipment and fees - awarded on a competitive basis,
- ability to leverage your research collaborations with leading research institutions and industry worldwide
Applications are being accepted until the end of February 2010 and please view www.lgsse.ie for details of application procedures. An application form is available to download from the website.
