Good 2:1 (or higher) Honours degree in a relevant engineering discipline (or Mathematics or Physics) or Computer Science as appropriate.
Months of entry
Topics for an MSc by research or PhD degree are decided upon by an academic member of staff. The expectation is for all researchers to produce original finds which can be published in leading international research journals.
PhDs are assessed by submission of a thesis followed by a viva which normally involves one (but occasionally two) external examiners. MScs are assessed by a thesis with the option of a viva if deemed appropriate by the examiners.
Information for international students
English language requirements include an IELTS of 6.5 or equivalent.
Fees and funding
With substantial contacts in industry, students at Durham are often supported through industrial sponsorship and we have a strong record of successful technology transfer through KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnerships) projects. Those investigations not funded solely by industry are often supported through EPSRC, DTI and EU grants.
