NA­TIONAL UNIVER­SITY OF GAL­WAY

India Today - - STUDY ABROAD -

Set over 105 acres in the heart of the city, Na­tional Univer­sity of Gal­way has a very strong con­nec­tion to the city’s cul­ture and to its lo­cal in­dus­try. It is home to the largest engineering school in Ire­land and is ac­tively seek­ing stu­dents for new post grad­u­ate pro­grammes in me­chan­i­cal and civil engineering. The Univer­sity's engineering depart­ment is a mar­vel, housed in a 'live' build­ing where con­struc­tion is ex­posed and only cov­ered by glass pan­els, al­low­ing stu­dents to see its in­ter­nal work­ings.

Gal­way is a hub for the bio­med­i­cal in­dus­try in Ire­land and lo­cal com­pa­nies have a strong syn­ergy with the Univer­sity’s bio­med­i­cal sci­ence re­search cen­tre. Gal­way of­fers spe­cialised cour­ses in re­gen­er­a­tive medicine, neu­rophar­ma­col­ogy and tox­i­col­ogy. “The struc­ture of the PhD pro­gramme is very in­no­va­tive and it com­bines both re­search and skill train­ing. We ac­tively work with man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies around the area who come to us if they have a prob­lem,” says Man­ish Ku­mar, a third year PhD stu­dent from Hy­der­abad. The city of Gal­way is among Ire­land's most friendly and vi­brant. It's lit­er­a­ture fes­ti­val is fa­mous, as is its the­atre com­pany.
