Course content

The Systems Engineering EngD is a four-year programme combining research and taught elements in Systems Engineering. The Research Engineers (REs) will spend around three-quarters of their time working directly with their sponsoring company, on research projects designed and supervised jointly by academics and the sponsoring company. The other quarter of the four-year period will be spent undertaking masters-level training in systems engineering skills, in the development of management capabilities, and specialist technical subjects directly relevant to each REs research.
