The University of Manchester research students have the opportunity to develop their skills through robust and flexible training that is designed to:
- Develop the research skills needed to plan and conduct research, write a thesis and disseminate research findings to stakeholders and the international research community;
- Gain understanding of the wide variety of research undertaken within the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering and in relevant disciplines across the University;
- Equip each student with the broader skills to become world leading industry professionals and researchers in the next generation.
Undertaking a PhD in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering is both challenging and rewarding. Not only does it provide you with the opportunity to strengthen your research ability but it will also help you to develop a much wider range of skills, required to develop your career in business and industry or in research and an academic environment.
Graduates from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering and Civil Engineering leave with a breadth of strong technical and inter-personal skills and expertise far beyond their particular degree specialism.
They progress into a wide variety of careers within engineering (e.g. consulting engineers, R&D companies, construction sector) academia, public services (e.g. civil service, policy change) and commerce (e.g. IT, finance). The acquisition of a PhD degree provides a significant career acceleration and facilitates entry into positions with greater responsibility and diverse opportunities.
Furthermore, it increasingly provides entrepreneurial opportunities, exploiting skills and knowledge acquired during the programme.
