Course content

he Master of Research (MRes) Engineering programme provides specialist study for graduates intending to work in research and development environments in a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines.

You'll develop your ability to apply engineering knowledge, your understanding of engineering principles and skills and gain an understanding of commitment to quality and standards to the practice of science and engineering.

The course is designed to enable you organise and manage technologically advanced research, development and production and also interact effectively in a global market. You'll acquire and use a broad base of active knowledge in various research technologies, and gain a broad and systematic understanding of the fundamental principles of a specific scientific or engineering area and its related topics.

The School of Engineering has a strong culture of research and enterprise. London South Bank University (LSBU) is the top modern university in London for world-leading and internationally excellent research and Grade Point Average in General Engineering -Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.

REF also awarded 80% of LSBU's research into General Engineering the two highest quality ratings (4* or 3*) for 'impact' (research and significance).

Research areas

LSBU offers several research centres or areas you could join:

• Advanced Materials
• Big Data and Informatics
• Biomedical and Communications
• Energy and the Environment
• Intelligent Monitoring and Asset Management
• Robotics

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community.

Advantages of an MRes

An MRes is distinct from a taught Masters in that your final output will be an extended dissertation or creative project relevant to your field of interest, rather than module-based coursework and exams.

An MRes provides you with hands-on experience for the tools used in scientific or engineering research. This includes good analytical and presentation skills, an ability to work both independently and as a member of a team, good time management and project management skills, and knowledge of emerging technologies and the ability to adapt to them.

You can complete an MRes in one year or part-time over two years, as opposed to a full PhD which can take up to five years. The MRes project can be focused toward a work-based project.


• Intellectual property development
• Technical, research and professional skills
• Research project

All modules are assessed by coursework, for example assignment reports. We have extensive research links with over 15 UK and 20 European companies, including:

• TWI Ltd
• British Telecoms
• Doosan Babcock Energy Ltd
• BP

And through our own spin-out companies, for example Biox Systems Ltd.


On successful completion of the course you can either continue to MPhil/ PhD studies or work in the research and development or technical support sections in industries such as electrical and electronic engineering, computer networks, telecommunications, and other engineering disciplines.

LSBU Employability Services
