Engineering (by Research)

Course Description

This programme is ideal for students with industrial experience who wish to work in a specific area, and prefer flexibility to the taught MSc programmes.

Flexibility is the key to this programme. It begins with an induction where you are allocated a supervisor and often an industry contact; this sets the direction of your research and identifies training needs. The Graduate School’s research training programme offers a range of sessions to meet those needs. Regular supervision and access to seminar groups, together with interim research reports, ensures good progress towards a final dissertation.

There is an MSc by Research scholarship scheme supported by the Sir John Fisher Foundation and is open to students interested in nuclear or maritime engineering research.

Visit the Engineering (by Research) page on the Lancaster University website for more details!
