Electronics and Computers Engineering
The doctoral program in Electronics and Computers Engineering (PDEEC) is an educational project of the Algoritmi Centre from the School of the Engineering of the University of Minho, that seeks to ensure to their trainees a systematic comprehension in the specific field of Electronics and Computers Engineering, alongside a more comprehensive training in larger areas, so as to provide an integrated and high level training. For this purpose, PDEEC provides students with the competencies, skills and research methods that ensure the ability to conceive, design, adapt and implement high-level scientific research projects, according to internationally accepted standards of quality and innovation
PDEEC is a 3 years tutorial program, with a total of 180 ECTS. The thesis should include a work of original research, with a clear contribution to the extension of the frontiers of knowledge in the area of the program.
The PhD in Electronic and Computer Engineering is organized into areas of specialization aligned with lines/groups of the Research Centers Algoritmi and CMEMS of the School of Engineering of the University of Minho, to be selected from the following:
– Control, Automation and Robotics
– Power Electronics and Energy
– Instrumentation and Electronic Microsystems
– Industrial Informatics and Embedded Systems
– Information Systems and Computer Communications
Candidates to PDEEC, considering what is defined in point 1 of Article 177 of the Academic Regulation of the University of Minho (RT-03/2020) are:
a) Holders of a master’s degree in the fields of Electronics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or other legal equivalent that guarantee the competences of the candidates in Physics and Mathematics subject to evaluation by the Course Steering Committee.
b) Holders of a bachelor’s degree, holders of a relevant academic or scientific curriculum that is recognized by the Scientific Council of the School of Engineering of the University of Minho (CCEEUM) as attesting the capacity to carry out this study cycle, in the areas and conditions defined in a).
c) Holders of an academic, scientific or professional curriculum that is recognized by the Scientific Council of the School of Engineering of the University of Minho CCEEUM as attesting the capacity to carry out this study cycle, in the areas and conditions defined in a).
