Study type Taught


Ireland has a dynamic electronic design industry that employs over eight thousand people and generates export revenue of approximately €9 Billion per annum. The industry depends for its success on the continuing development of talent to the highest international standards. The Professional Diploma in Electronic Design is designed to help electronics graduates transition into design and/or to improve their professional skills.

Until recently, it has been impossible for engineers working in industry to gain access to the graduate-level electronic design modules offered by University College Dublin because attendance at the Belfield campus was compulsory; this made participation impossible for those outside Dublin and for those in full-time employment.

By making selected modules available online, this programme provides a unique opportunity to learn from world leaders in embedded systems, power electronics, mixed-signal, RF, and microwave circuit design, while in employment. Modules are also taught by leaders in the field who regularly publish in the top journals and conferences.
