Course Summary

The School of Engineering has a strong culture of research and enterprise. London South Bank University (LSBU) is the top modern university in London for world-leading and internationally excellent research and Grade Point Average in General Engineering -Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The Intelligent Monitoring and Asset Management Research Centre focuses on monitoring the condition of machines and systems; diagnosis and prognosis methods and novel asset management. The Centre’s research goals are to maximize systems availability, prevent un-planned shutdowns, optimize maintenance services, reduce overall operating costs and increase returns on investment. A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team. LSBU is committed to supporting students to develop their employability and succeed in getting a job after they have graduated. Their qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market students also need to work on their employability, and on their career search.
