ICGEE has three sub committees:
Programme Committee or PC, chaired by Professor Gerald Farrell of DIT. This committee is responsible for organisation and development of a high quality doctoral engineering curriculum as outlined in the ICGEE project proposal and per agreement with participating ICGEE academic institutions. The PC terms of reference include:
- drive the organisation and development of the Micro- Nano-Engineering Programme curriculum and training activities;
- prepare and maintain appropriate documentation to describe the programme of study and the module/course choices and credits available to students and to dovetail the ICGEE offerings with academic programmes at partner sites;
- liaise with the host institutions for the modules and courses that comprise the ICGEE programme in matters relating to module content and quality.
- conduct a critical analysis of the curriculum and the preparation of documentation and other tasks in relation to external reviews of ICGEE.
Graduate Committee or GC (formally known as Admission Committee), chaired by Dr Fearghal Morgan of NUIG. The GC is responsible for maintaining and monitoring of a high quality doctoral engineering curriculum as outlined in the ICGEE project proposal and per agreement with participating ICGEE academic institutions. The GC terms of reference include:
- Monitoring and documenting the academic progress of graduate students enrolled the Micro- Nano-Engineering Programme curriculum and training activities;
- To liaise with ICGEE partner institutions to coordinate the technical framework required to provide a national graduate shared education programme;
- To work with partner institutions to achieve ICGEE’s recruitment targets
- Liaise with the host institutions for the modules and courses that comprise the ICGEE programme in matters relating to module quality and delivery.
- Conduct critical analysis and implement improvements for course content delivery in relation to external reviews of ICGEE.
External Relations Committee or ERC (formally the Evaluation Committee), chaired by Professor John T. Sheridan of UCD. The ERC’s responsibility is to ensure that the programme and curriculum offered meet the requirements and objectives for the training requirements for PhD students in the area of micro- and nano- engineering at each ICGEE partner institution. The ERC terms of reference include:
- To create an awareness in all relevant department/schools/colleges in Irish HEIs of the ICGEE programme goals and the benefits of the ICGEE programme to their PhD training programmes in the area of micro- and nano-engineering
- To help ICGEE academic partners to gain access to ICGEE educational activities and to embed these activities in the partner’s structured PhD programmes
- To develop the forum for all Irish HEIs to discuss and develop and implement a shared national curriculum in micro- and nano-engineering.
