This MSc is a 90 ECTS course, which is normally taken full-time over one full year (3 trimesters).

A 2.1 honours or international equivalent in a primary degree (NFQ Level 8) in any area of Physics or Engineering is normally required for entry. In certain cases, a 2.2 honours degree may be accepted, depending on the student's background, relevant experience and availability of places.

Applicants should have a basic level of programming skills.

English Language Requirements 

For non-native speakers, an English language requirement must be met via an IELTS score of 6.5, unless the primary degree was conducted through English. For IELTS of 5.5, there is a pre-masters option which provides a route to the MSc after 1 year.
