Our Doctoral Programme (Postgraduate Research)
MPhil & PhD
You can apply for our one year MPhil or three year PhD programmes at any point during the year. We welcome speculative research proposals or you can select from our list of defined PGR projects offered by our Institutes.
All PhD students in the Electronic and Electrical Engineering programme from the University of Strathclyde will be enrolled in the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development programme (PgCert RPD).
This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here. It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:
- the knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
- the personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
- the standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
- working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences
All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your PhD, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.
We offer EngD programmes in two research areas:
- Optics and Photonics Technologies
- Non-Destructive Evaluation
These are delivered in partnership with a number of other reputable UK universities, so do not worry if you are directed to another university website to submit your application. You can apply for these all year round. EngD students are not required to enrol on the PGCert RPD.
An Industrial Doctorate offers those currently in work, the opportunity to gain a PhD through undertaking a three year industrial-focused research project with their employer. Your project focuses on issues relevant to the company, enabling it to gain valuable knowledge, supporting its growth and development.
