Overview

This structured Geocomputation programme at the Maynooth University  aims to:

  • Build capacity for independent research.
  • Enable students to disseminate their research.

In addition to the modules associated with this particular course, this Structured PhD programme offers postgraduate researchers the opportunity to select from modules taught on the MSc in Geocomputation and professional skills training modules offered by different faculties or modules offered by other Departments which are of particular interest, for example research commercialisation.

Career

There is an international shortage of highly skilled researchers able to handle large and complex datasets. Thus far our PhD graduates have continued with research in academic environments but there are opportunities in public and private sector research and development, with environmental concerns and policy organisations: much depends on the substantive area of the thesis topic. This might focus on the innovative collection and processing of new datasets, on visualising complex datasets in multiple dimensions, on machine learning or on algorithms for the spatial analysis of data in a particular application area, for example health and retailing.
