ProfDip Electronic Design

Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 20)

UCD offers a range of high-quality modules as part of its degree programmes. Traditionally, these modules have only been available to full-time students, although the content is of great interest to graduates working in industry.

The Government's July stimulus has provided funding to make these modules accessible to part-time learners who are based full-time in industry.

This is a unique opportunity to take four modules in Electronic Design, including Prof. Bogdan Staszewski’s classes on Analogue Integrated Circuits and Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuit Design (both of which include familiarisation with Cadence design tools), Prof. Anding Zhu’s class on Radio-Frequency Electronics, and Dr. Terence O’Donnell’s class on Power Electronics Technology.

The 20 places on the programme, which starts in January 2021, are funded under the Government initiative to provide Higher Education places to help people get back to work and to upskill workers in the area of Electronic Design. Fee discounts of 90% to 100% are available.

Choose four of eight modules. Modules offered include EEEN40150 Radio-Frequency Electronics, EEEN40310 Power Electronics Technology, EEEN40570 Analogue Integrated Circuits, and EEEN40600 Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits.

Professional diplomas can be delivered fully online. Some modules* if chosen will have a lab component requiring some attendance on campus see below:
