Engineering and Technology

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

The field of engineering and technology involves the study of how the conceptual design focus of engineering can be utilized in technological applications. Engineering and technology students learn how to take the plans made by engineers and make them work in the real world.

Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located in Southwestern Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal is 900 years old, and even though it has a relatively small area, it played a crucial role in world history. Universidade do Porto is most popular by foreigners which consist of 11% international students.

Doctoral Programme in Informatics MAP-i The MAP Doctoral Program in Computer Science consists of a first curricular year starting in the fall and divided into two semesters. The first semester features four courses chosen in the areas foundations of computing, programming paradigms and information technologies and a seminar on research methodologies which includes working visits to MAP associated research centers and laboratories. In the second semester, the students are offered a number of optional courses taught by professors from MAP universities and leading scientists from abroad. The graduate students are expected to take some credits in matters not directly related to their field of study. In the first year, the student must choose his topic of dissertation from a list of possible research projects. Based on this choice, the student must prepare his thesis proposal, during the second semester, which includes an extensive review of the state of the art, a set of detailed objectives and methods, outline of potential contributions and a road map to achieve them. The thesis proposal is discussed with a jury in the end of the first year. Following this curricular year, which is worth 60 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), the graduate student enters the research and thesis development phase, which lasts for 2 to 3 years and corresponds to at least 120 credits. Students may choose to follow the program as full-time students or, if they are working in a company or in a research project, may prefer to enroll as part-time students in 30 credits per year, paying 60% of the fees. In terms of organization, the MAP universities agreed upon a general model, in which the curricular part is taught entirely in one of the institutions, rotating every year between Minho, Aveiro and Porto. Each student receives individual guidance by a mentor, until he gets a supervisor. After the first year, the student moves to the university and research group of the supervisor. Beyond the regular thesis supervision, the student's progress will be monitored by a PhD committee consisting of two other recognized experts in the field, one of which from an outside institution. Submission of the thesis and thesis defense follow standard international practice. A student will be awarded a doctorate, in the form of a joint PhD degree by the Universities of Minho, Aveiro and Porto, if his thesis is judged to represent an original contribution to knowledge in the chosen area.

Objectives To complement the education of MSc and undergrad students in science and engineering courses, providing advanced training in emergent areas of pervasive communication systems and digital media. To assist in the development of competences in terms of research methodology and experimentation, allowing the autonomous development of research and the development of activities covering several aspects of the R&D process, namely, selection and application of writing techniques for the dissemination of R&D results. To provide candidates with a solid grasp of the most recent evolution concerning informatics sciences, in particular concerning pervasive systems and new media. The programme integrates a teaching staff from ECATI, most of which also integrate the ECATI R&D Unit COPELABS (Informatics Systems and Technologies) as associate members, and which have strong expertise in fields such as complex systems, computational sciences, digital media, and Internet technologies and systems. Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired Over 36 months, applicants shall acquire skills in three areas of intervention, established in accordance to the "European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Good Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers." Out of the three areas of intervention, two are mandatory (knowledge area and research area), while the third is an optional training area.Such areas are: - Knowledge area: it has the goal to support knowledge acquisition in specific scientific and technological fields, being offered via the curricular units, and seminars. Topics covered are grouped in accordance to the two main programme's themes (New Media and Pervasive Systems). - Research area: it has the goal to assist student in the development of accomplishment of a plan of research studies appropriate to reach with excellence the doctor degree. Such study plan will be developed within an international research context, based on the R&D Unit COPELABS (Cognitive and People-Centric Computing). - Training area: it aims at providing students with the possibility to overcome specific challenges in implementing their research plans. This training nature is optional and its validity is analyzed by the student's advisor. In case of approval, it shall be included in the student's research plan and it can be implemented, for example, in collaboration with an industrial partner under a national or an international research project. Equipments and venues NEMPS is held at the campus of Universidade Lusófona. The facilities that the programme has are: - 2 auditoriums and a lecture hall. Average-sized classrooms (up to 40 persons). - Space dedicated to individual work located in the R&D Unit COPELABS. The unit has an open-space area for PhD students with a module composed of chair, desk, drawers and access to the Internet via wireless and cabling. - Equipment dedicated to R&D activities, including testing facilities. - Social area shared within the R&D unit. -Space in the general Library with over 4,000 monographs, specialized journals and online access to scientific journals, namely sage, Intelect and IEEE related to this training area.
