An engineering Ph.D. can be a pathway to a career in a wide range of related jobs, including in management roles – or the academic world. If you’re already in such a role, the Ph.D. is a major piece of personal development, developing new knowledge and building skills for your next career step. Your engineering Ph.D. study builds on our expertise and professional and industry networks.
We cover the major aspects of mechanical and electronic engineering and civil engineering. We are interested in interdisciplinary research building links to areas including the built environment, computing, health, law, and others.
WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS COURSE?
A Ph.D. enables you to follow a program of self-directed, independent study, supported by experienced supervisors who are themselves experts in their area. We may use industry experts to support some projects, and others may be run in full collaboration with an industry partner.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice prepares you for study at this level, as most find it a very different experience from previously taught courses.
Topic-specific training and support are identified and provided by your supervision team and other experts as necessary.
Although you will be developing as an independent researcher, you will be supported both by your supervisors and the wider research community in the School, Faculty, and University. There are regular opportunities for you to present and share your work with other research students and staff.
