About

The Mechanical and Systems Engineering MPhil and PhD allow you to deepen your theoretical understanding of your chosen topic but also improve your technical skills and analytical capabilities. Research degrees are offered through four research groups: Bioengineering, MEMS and Sensors, Fluid Dynamics and Thermal Systems, and Design, Manufacture and Materials.

Overview

The School of Mechanical Engineering is one of the top 10 Mechanical Engineering research schools in the UK (RAE 2008). As a postgraduate researcher you will be welcomed as a junior academic colleague rather than a student. In this role we ask you to play a full and professional role in contributing to the School’s objective of international academic excellence.

The School, the Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering, and your supervisory team will support you to develop your research capabilities. We will help you progress with your higher degree and attain a unique skill set, through international conference attendance and research paper submissions.

Research in the School falls into four main fields.

  • Bioengineering - group leader Professor Thomas Joyce
  • MEMS and Sensors - group leader Professor Peter Cumpson
  • Design, Manufacture and Materials – group leader Professor Kenneth Dalgarno
  • Fluid Dynamics and Thermal Systems – group leader Professor Nilanjan Chakraborty
