The Course

As a researcher in the School of Engineering, you can benefit from the expertise of our academics and award-winning industry links. Research opportunities are available in a variety of areas relevant to today’s engineering industry.

The School of Engineering is a Centre of Industrial Research and Development Excellence, with expertise centred on core disciplines of intelligent systems and control, power and energy, and materials, manufacturing and processing. During the programme, you will have the chance to collaborate with industry on projects that can deliver tangible benefits to employers, the sector and society.

The MSc by Research degree enables you to pursue a one year full-time (or two years part-time) individual programme of research.

How You Study

As a research student, you will be allocated two academic supervisors and the College Research Degrees Board will monitor your progress. You will be encouraged to participate in our research seminar series and in the University’s Doctoral School and training programmes. The School will also support you in applying for funding to attend conferences, and in publishing your work in conference proceedings and refereed journals.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisors, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

Research Areas, Projects and Topics

Example research areas of study from mechanical and electrical engineering include:

  • fault diagnosis
  • intelligent systems
  • advanced multi-variable control and optimization
  • autonomous vehicles and safety
  • automation and control
  • smart buildings
  • process automation
  • smart machines, including turbomachinery, electric drives and electric vehicles.

How You Are Assessed

The MSc by Research involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff on a topic to be agreed with your supervisor. The MSc by Research is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic.
