Our MPhil and PhD courses combine taught research training and applied research practice for a rounded student experience. You can choose to apply for a pre-defined research project or develop your own proposal. We encourage a wide range of interests and our academic staff are open to new ideas in their existing areas of research expertise.
You will join us as a junior academic colleague and contribute to forward-thinking research in one of our interdisciplinary centres/units.
We cover the broad areas of design and manufacturing, machine systems, solid mechanics and materials, and thermo-fluids. We carry out advanced and innovative research in:
- Sustainable energy and the environment
- Aerodynamics and aerospace systems
- Composite and smart materials
- Advanced manufacturing and metrology
- Biomechanics of artificial joints
- Robotics and system dynamics
- Advanced vehicle powertrains
Much of our research is collaborative in nature. We work with industry to find solutions to problems that affect all areas of society. Our research impact was officially recognised in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). 89% of our research was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent, placing us 10th in the UK for our submission to the Aeronautical, Mechanical, Chemical and Manufacturing Engineering.
