An EngD at Swansea University is suitable for graduates with an Engineering or relevant Physical Sciences degree with a minimum level of 2:1, or with a relevant Masters level qualification.
Months of entry
The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is an alternative to the traditional PhD if you are interested in a career in industry.
The EngD is equivalent to a PhD in its intellectual challenge, but as a Research Engineer (EngD student), your research will be industry-led and your project will involve working with a company. The progamme also includes a taught component. This provides an unparralled opportunity to gain experience working at the cutting-edge of research that is relevant to industry. The four-year programme combines PhD-level research projects with taught courses. You will spend at least 50% of your time working directly with a company. As a Research Engineer, you will be supervised by two academics and an industrial contact within the company.
The EngD scheme was established by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to provide ambitious and motivated graduates with doctorate-level training, putting new ideas into practice and progressing careers to reach senior positions in industry.
