Mechanical Engineering Research Programmes

We offer a variety of research fields in Mechanical Engineering and welcome graduates looking to further their study.

Postgraduate researchers joining our School will normally be allocated to work within one of the major research groups. These groups undertake research activity over a wide range of research topics.

Within mechanical engineering our current principal research fields are:

As well as seeking graduates in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering and engineering mathematics, we welcome applicants with degrees in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and mathematics.

Most research students proceed to a PhD, which requires three years full-time study or five years part-time study. An MPhil degree is available for candidates who cannot commit this length of time.
