What will I learn?

The Southampton EngD in Engineering and the Environment combines advanced technical and management training with PhD level research in collaboration with an industry partner/sponsor.

Projects cover a wide range of topics in the interrelated, and globally critical, areas of engineering and the environment and may be associated with any of the research groups in Engineering.

Precise topics each year are determined by the research interests of the sponsoring companies, and may be aligned with our current CDTs in:

  • Energy storage and its applications. Understanding the technologies behind energy storage is crucial to a global low carbon economy.
  • Next generation computational modelling. Computer simulations connect theory and experiment and encourage innovation across engineering and science.
  • Sustainable infrastructure systems. Improving global infrastructure is key to economic growth, security, sustainability and wellbeing.

We are also recruiting to EngDs in other themes supported by research in our Faculty, e.g. Transport and the Environment or Biomedical Engineering, as long as there is an industry sponsor.

As all our EngD research students are part sponsored by industry, you will have an industrial supervisor as well as a supervisory team at the University. Research projects are developed collaboratively by the academic supervisors and the research student in consultation with the sponsoring company.
