Course Summary

The Engineering Departments within the Faculty of Engineering and Science focus on practical and important real life problems. This work is supported by research funding of around £1.6 million per annum. Each student normally first enrols on the MPhil degree. After completing the first year of the MPhil, the student's progress is reviewed, and, if considered satisfactory, the student is permitted to transfer to the PhD for a further two to three years of research. A student who does not wish to continue at this point may write up and submit the work to be considered for an MPhil degree.

Students are assessed through their research, thesis and a viva voce examination. Graduates from this programme can pursue a wide range of career opportunities in industry, government and academia.
