     Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) has delegated authority to award Masters by research qualifications in Business, Computing and Science. Normally a student undertaking a Masters by research programme of study will take 24 months to complete. Masters by research projects which are currently running in the School of Science include:
    • Economic Feasibility of Natural Astaxanthin production in the North West of Ireland
    • Development of an Enhanced Steganography Method for Digital Images to Protect Biometric Data in Biometric Security Systems
    • Digital Evidence Integrity Assurance
    • A study om the Effects of the Carotenoid Astaxanthin on inflammation and infection in in vitro lung cell models
    • Isolation and Identiifcation of Novel Bacteria for the Treatment of Crustacean Waste to Produce Chitinous Material

     Students wishing to pursue PhD programmes of study at LYIT can do so in the Department of Science in the areas of Aquatic Science and Chemical Science. The normal duration for such research is 4 years. Projects which have been completed in the Department of Science to date at PhD level include:
    • Factors affecting the concentration of domoic acid in scallop
    • Electrochemical studies of some ruthenium and osium complexes and their application in DNA biosensor development
    • High Performance liquid chromatography method development and chemometric analysis of ecstasy and cocaine
    • Investigation of novel pathways in the regulation of the inflammatory response in Rheumatoid Arthritis’

     Many of the research projects followed by our Masters and PhD students are applied in nature which means they are geared towards the solution of a problem for a particular company or industry. Thus our students are engaged in the resolution of real life scenarios related to the ‘real world of work’. Students are guided by a principle supervisor and in many instances a co-supervisor within LYIT alongside a supervisor from business or industry. They participate in training programmes provide by the Institute such as Academic Writing All Programmes of study by research are normally advertised on the Institute website or in national newspapers.
