NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF GALWAY
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.
