To obtain the Electrical and Computer Engineering degree from Instituto Superior Técnico the student must demonstrate technical breadth, steady progress in research, and contribute to the body of knowledge in electrical and computer engineering and disseminate this knowledge through the oral and written form.
Each of these abilities are tested using a variety of requirements, and are detailed below.
Students demonstrate breadth by taking graduate courses. All incoming PDEEC students are required to fulfill the PDEEC Course Requirements , i. e., to complete a minimum of 30 ECTS or 5 advanced (graduate/ doctoral level) courses.
Each student may choose his or her own course and research schedule with the approval of his or her advisor. Graduate courses include any of the courses listed in the PDEEC approved graduate course list.
Students may demonstrate their ability to disseminate knowledge through completing the Teaching Internship . All PDEEC students are strongly advised to register for and must complete a one semester internship in university teaching.
This teaching internship is equivalent to a graduate course (Teaching Assistance) and it contributes with 6 ECTS to the PDEEC Course Requirements. It may be completed at any time during the student's enrollment in the PDEEC.
The main goal of the PhD program in Electrical and Computer Engineering is to prepare researchers for autonomous scientific work in the areas covered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Holders of a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering can have academic positions in higher education institutions in Portugal or abroad, supervise MSc and PhD students, work on research laboratories and institutes, and work in private companies, namely those having research and development departments.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
