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.
The Department of Engineering at Lancaster University invites applications from exceptional graduates to study for one-year MSc-by-research degrees.This opportunity has been generously supported by a charitable organisation. Each scholarship covers both fees and student stipend. Successful candidates will be expected to serve ambassidorial roles in engineering in the North-West of England.Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Malcolm Joyce, Head of Engineering at Lancaster University via email to: [email protected] or Michelle Atkins to [email protected]
