Doctoral Program in Telecommunications

The MAP-tele Doctoral Programme in Telecommunications is a joint venture of Universidade do Minho, Universidade de Aveiro and Universidade do Porto (MAP), three Portuguese Universities with a strong tradition in the area of Telecommunications Engineering. The programme represents a fusion of the doctoral offers in Telecommunications in the three institutions and constitutes a unified effort to prepare highly qualified human resources in Telecommunications.

The programme is supported by an academic staff of more than 150 PhDs whose research and development activities covers a wide range of topics, ranging from theoretical and fundamental aspects to the experimental and applied areas of Telecommunications, and comprehends wide-ranging collaborative work with leading industries in this country and abroad.

The MAP-tele Doctoral Programme in Telecommunications targets both national and international audiences and is designed for excellence and competitiveness at the international level. All courses and seminars will be given in English. It aims to prepare selected students for leadership in research and development careers in industry, academia and independent entrepreneurial initiatives.

The programme comprises two semesters of curricular component and four to six semesters of research component leading to the PhD thesis. The research will be carried out in one of the research centres affiliated with the three Universities (IT, IEETA, FSCOD, INESC Porto, LIACC, Centro Algoritmi, CCTC) or in leading companies associated with the program.
