All students entering PhD programmes in UCD College of Engineering & Architecture from Sept 2015 on are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits of taught or transferable skills modules. For students who commenced PhD programmes prior to September 2015 there is no lower limit on the number of taught modules, although there are some restrictions as to the number of modules taken at a particular level, and there is an upper limit on the total number of taught modules. These restrictions are stipulated in the PhD regulations.

The aim of taught modules is to facilitate research as well as to provide students with important transferable skills to enhance career development. Your School may recommend or require specific modules; beyond this, it is for you and your Principal Supervisor to decide which modules are most appropriate to your research.
