Structured Programme

The DIT MPhil and PhD programmes are structured programmes of education that are research-based and include activities that support the acquisition of a range of relevant specialist and transferrable skills.

As a research degree student you will complete your specialised research project in interdisciplinary research environments and simultaneously develop a range of discipline specific and transferrable skills and competencies utilisable by industry and the professions. All research degree students complete transferrable skills modules during their programme including Communication Skills, Ethics & Social Understanding, Research Methods, Project Management, Entrepreneurship & Innovation and Professional & Career Management. College of Business research degree students also complete discipline specific modules which are tailored to their individual research projects.  These include modules in Business Research Methods, Quantitative Research Methods, and Qualitative Research Methods.
