EngD Engineering


Course Description

The Centre for Water Systems at the University of Exeter, in conjunction with a number of other universities, offers a professional industrial doctorate for those interested in urban water management, artificial intelligence, hydroinformatic tools or water research in general.

An EngD is a four year research degree awarded for industrially relevant research, the degree provides a more vocationally oriented approach to obtaining a doctorate in engineering commensurate with that of a PhD.

The EngD programme will allow you to receive postgraduate-level technical and transferable skills training at five leading UK universities in the water research field. This university collaboration forms the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)-funded STREAM centre (the industrial doctorate centre for the water sector).

The idea of STREAM is to enable researchers to develop new and innovative solutions to problems encountered by engineers, chemists and operators and this industry-driven approach to research results in a degree programme that is informed by the knowledge and skills needs of the water sector.

The modules are designed to allow you to expand your basic knowledge of real-life problems and the programme gives the opportunity to gain the practical experience required by leading employers. You will have the opportunity to undertake study visits to leading overseas academic research groups and a yearly symposium enables all STREAM research engineers to present their work to sector stakeholders.

A number of four-year EPSRC-funded studentships are made available to allow doctoral-level research to be conducted while working directly with industrial partners in the water sector. Please contact the centre for details.

Programme structure

The STREAM programme comprises three components leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate degree
• Acquisition of advanced technical skills through attendance at Masters level training courses
• Tuition in the competencies and abilities expected of senior engineers through a Transferable Skills and Engineering Leadership (TSEL) component
• Doctoral level research project(s).

Technical Skills

Examples of the technical skills modules available are as follow; Introduction to the water sector; Water and wastewater treatment principles; Process science and engineering; Principles of hydraulics and water distribution; Engineering sustainability; Asset stewardship and Group design project.

Transferable skills & Engineering Leadership

Examples of these modules are as follows; Philosophy of science; Research methods and research design; Creativity and design; Engineering past, present and future; Health and Safety standards; Project management for research; Role of research in supporting business functions; Research ethics; Basic presentational, writing and meetings skills; Financial management; Personal effectiveness and time management; Team working and management; Knowledge transfer and research exploitation; Project costing; Business risk; Patenting and IPR; Science communication; Negotiation and influencing skills; Writing a business case for investment and Supervision skills

The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.
