SFI-Funded Ph.D Opportunity at the College of Engineering & Informatics

The SFI-Funded Centre for Marine Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI) with partner institutions NUIG, UCC, UL, NUIM and UCD - will develop the science and technology required by industry to generate wave, tidal and floating wind energy devices. MaREI will carry out world leading research on all aspects required for the success of the marine renewable energy sector while also educating and training the next generation of engineers and scientists for the marine renewable energy industry. Many of the activities in MaREI involve modelling, simulations and large data sets. A key to efficient and accurate interpretation of this information is the development and use of visualisation techniques and modern gaming engines have unique 3D data handling capabilities that traditional GIS mapping and CAD software does not. This industry-sponsored research project will develop highly-interactive 3D simulations tools using gaming technology, incorporating physics engines allow the assignation of real world physical properties to models, to enable the simulation of interactions between modelled entities. Applications are now welcome from graduates with visualization/gaming expertise and an honours degree in Computer Science and/or related engineering discipline. For further details on this project, please contact Dr. Jim Duggan ( and/or Dr. Sam Redfern (
