MPhil and PhD

Marine Science

Research in our thriving research School ranges from molecular and cellular processes of marine organisms to large-scale ecosystem and geomorphological responses to global changes as well as the chemical processes driving them.

Our MPhil and PhD programmes provide training in the most modern techniques enabling scientists to play a leading role in the management of coastal environments throughout the world. Each year research students contribute to the Postgraduate Conference, participate in the seminar series and have opportunities for special training to equip them for independent careers as marine scientists or coastal managers.

Marine Technology

Our very high research degree completion rates testify to the supportive environment and excellent supervisory systems we have in place for our research students and the quality of the training we provide in project-specific and transferable skills.

Marine Technology at Newcastle leads research into design, offshore engineering, marine engineering, computational fluid dynamics, high-performance computing, hydrodynamics and decision support work. This is complemented by extensive world-class research and teaching facilities. Support for our research comes from research councils and industry. We have close links with the Engineering Design Centre and can offer opportunities for research projects linked to local and national marine industries.
