Course Summary

We engage in research and develop graduate courses where integration between disciplines is encouraged.

The Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering (ACE), is part of the Faculty of Engineering & Design and brings together two traditionally distinct professional disciplines. The research culture in ACE greatly benefits from this joint nature, with a diversity of work ranging from theoretical studies of architectural history to the solving of practical problems concerning bridge design. Our consistent aim is to be an internationally-focused centre of research excellence in the fields in which we specialise.

Assessment description

The MPhil programme combines taught research training and applied research practice. Candidates join the Department as a member of the Research Centre in which they initially have a broad research interest and that will have overseen their acceptance into the Department.

Most of our research students register as probationers for the PhD programme to begin with. Your PhD registration is confirmed subject to your passing an assessment process. This normally involves submitting written work and an oral examination. There is also an alternate by paper route which can be discussed with the Faculty.

The final stage of the MPhil programme is the oral or viva voce examination, in which students are required to defend the thesis to a Board of Examiners.
