About

What skills will you gain by taking the Engineering (Postgraduate Research) programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton?

  • University Research Conference – The University Research Conference is held in June for research active staff and PhD students to showcase their areas of research and exchange research initiatives. Research students are welcome to make presentations during their period of study. Research students are also encouraged to disseminate final results of their research prior to submission.
  • University Research Training - Students are encouraged to participate in training provided by the Doctoral College not only because of its intrinsic value but also because these sessions may facilitate meetings with post-graduates outside the school.
  • Teaching Skills Development - At the School of Engineering, we understand that postgraduate research students wish to develop their academic CVs while with us. For this reason, research students are provided the opportunity to undergo teaching skills development. The School of Engineering seeks to ensure, wherever possible, that PhD students have the opportunity to teach on relevant undergraduate modules.

Careers

  • Research degrees in the School of Engineering can provide students with opportunities in a multitude of career paths, including academia, government, non-governmental organisations and the private sector.
