Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Queen's is also ranked 9th in the UK (Times Good University Guide 2012) and among the top 100 in the world (QS World Rankings 2012).
In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise 80% of research within the School was judged to be internationally excellent or world leading. A strong, research-led ethos pervades the School, and this is reflected in its involvement in a number of major research centres, including:
Undertaking a PhD is a highly rewarding experience and here at SEEECS you will have the opportunity to work with some of the most passionate researchers in their field. The School currently has over 130 PhD students from 40 countries worldwide, and therefore enjoys the many benefits that this brings to its research community.

Both the MPhil and PhD programmes provide the opportunity to acquire an extensive training in research techniques, to develop and refine the appropriate research skills and to carry out significant, high quality, original research in a specified area.
Research undertaken for an MPhil should advance the boundaries of knowledge in a discipline through research and the systematic and creative application of research techniques to complex problems.
Entry to the MPhil programme requires at least an honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate scientific or engineering discipline. The programme runs for 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time.
Doctorates are awarded for the creation and interpretation of knowledge, which extends the forefront of a discipline, through original research. This requires the ability to conceptualise, design and implement projects for the generation of significant new knowledge and/or understanding.
Entry to the PhD programme requires at least an honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate scientific or engineering discipline. The programme runs for 3 year full-time or 6 years part-time.
Before submitting an online application form, applicants are strongly recommended to contact a member of academic staff to discuss their research interests and current research projects available in that area.
