The PhD Programme in Telecommunications is a joint venture of Universidade do Minho (www.uminho.pt), Universidade de Aveiro (www.ua.pt) and Universidade do Porto (www.up.pt), three Portuguese Universities with a strong tradition in the area of Telecommunications Engineering. The programme represents a fusion of the doctoral offers in Telecommunications in the three institutions and constitutes a unified effort to prepare highly qualified human resources in Telecommunications.
The programme is supported by an academic staff of more than 150 PhDs whose research and development activities covers a wide range of topics, ranging from theoretical and fundamental aspects to the experimental and applied areas of Telecommunications, and comprehends wide-ranging collaborative work with leading industries in this country and abroad. The MAP-tele targets both national and international audiences and is designed for excellence and competitiveness at the international level. It aims to prepare selected students for leadership in research and development careers in industry, academia and independent entrepreneurial initiatives.
The programme comprises two semesters of curricular component and four to six semesters of research component leading to the PhD thesis. All courses and seminars will be taught in English. A distinctive feature of the curricular part is its strong laboratorial component in the areas of optical and wireless communications and communications networks. The research will be carried out in one of the research centres affiliated with the three Universities or in leading companies associated with the programme.
