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.
