What will I learn?

Overview

This 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 principles and develop commitment to quality practice. An expert in your chosen field will guide your research programme and you'll become part of our thriving academic community.

Research areas

We offer several research centres/areas you can join:

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

Employability

All research students are required to participate in a Key Skills Development programme aimed at developing transferable skills in addition to those employed in carrying out research. Training in research methods is available through frequent research seminars.

When necessary the research student can follow, in part, relevant Masters courses available within the School and in particular units on research methodology. In some cases, research students are encouraged to follow other courses available within the University or externally aimed at improving their general expertise in their chosen areas.

In addition, they may be encouraged to follow language courses aimed at improving their oral and written skills - both essential in their future careers.

Transferable skills

A research degree will equip you with many transferable skills. The self-discipline, the demand for clear analytical thinking, and the ability to turn criticism of others work into something constructive of your own, all constitute a unique training for almost any kind of career. The excitement and satisfaction of finding new facts, a new idea, or a new way of looking at something can be highly rewarding.
