The Engineering Departments within the Faculty of Engineering and Science have a population of around 50 MPhil/PhD students working in seven research groups, focusing on practical and important real life problems. This work is supported by research funding of around £1.6 million per annum.

Degree structure

Each student normally first enrols on the MPhil degree. After completing the first year of the MPhil, the student's progress is reviewed, and, if considered satisfactory, the student is permitted to transfer to the PhD for a further two to three years of research. A student who does not wish to continue at this point may write up and submit the work to be considered for an MPhil degree.

Academic support

MPhil/PhD students are usually provided with two supervisors, who guide them through the research. The supervisors are usually research staff from within the faculty, although a supervisor may be appointed from another Department or from outside the university. The faculty also offers a one-year Engineering, MSc by Research.

Research groups

Research groups in the faculty include:

  • The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology
  • The Manufacturing Engineering Research Group
  • The Mobile and Wireless Communications Research Laboratory
  • The Internet Security Research Laboratory
  • The Centre for Innovative Product Development
  • The Infrastructure Management Research Group
  • The Sustainability in Civil Engineering Research Group.

Enrolment date

Enrolment on the PhD/MPhil programme can take place at any time during the academic year.

What you will study

The normal route accepted by the University is to register first as MPhil student, and transfer to PhD after demonstrating sufficient progress in your research. To do this you will need to apply for the MPhil/PhD programme. 

Programme duration; 

MPhil is 18-36 months full-time and 30-48 months part-time; 

MPhil/PhD is 36-48 months full-time and 48-84 months part-time.
