Wuhan University (WHU) is one of China’s leading universities and DCU’s longest-standing partner institution in the country.

The Chinese Ministry of Education have approved a collaborative MEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering (Major in Advanced Data Networks) between the School of Electronic Engineering in DCU and the School of Computer Science in Wuhan.  This joint initiative is both WHU’s and DCU’s first MOE-approved collaborative Master programme, and WHU is the highest ranked of any MOE approved Sino-Irish programme collaborators.

The first intake of 30 students occurred in September 2019 and students are recruited through the Chinese National Postgraduate Entrance Examination. Students will spend the first year studying at WHU and the second year at DCU, earning a dual degree.

Graduates of the programme will benefit from Ireland’s two-year visa stay back option which affords international postgraduate degree holders with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in Ireland’s exciting tech environment.
