Engineering - Research, MPhil


Course Description

The Department of Mechanical Manufacturing & Design Engineering has a population of around 50 MPhil 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.

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.

MPhil 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 MSc by Research.
