About

The Mechanical Engineering programme from University of Kent offers research-led degrees in a wide range of research disciplines in a highly stimulating academic environment.

Overview

Key Features

The Mechanical Engineering Group in School of Engineering offers a Masters by Research (MRes) as well as a PhD programme in Mechanical Engineering. A full time MRes is a one year programme that leads to a research thesis. The duration for PhD programme is three years.

The Mechanical Engineering programme from University of Kent will allow you to undertake cutting-edge projects in advanced fields of Mechanical Engineering. 

The School has state-of-the-art facilities and experimental equipment to support students’ research such as 3-D printer, wind tunnel, dynamic testing machines, mechatronic units and non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment. The School provides research students the opportunity to participate in regular research seminars and workshops. We also offer research students the possibility of attending international conferences organised by Mechanical Engineering societies to present their work.

Our one year MSc by Research in Mechanical Engineering is an internationally recognised advanced postgraduate research degree, providing an ideal foundation for advanced skills and knowledge. Traditional MSc degrees primarily contain taught modules, whilst an MSc by Research is heavily research or practice-based and you learn through hands-on projects.

These research fields include:

  • computer aided design (CAD),
  • failure of materials and structures,
  • computational fluid dynamics (CFD),
  • automation and manufacturing,
