A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a relevant science or engineering discipline.
Entry is competitive, so we would prefer a UK first class honours degree, or its international equivalent, in engineering, physics, chemistry or another relevant physical science.

All applicants must also meet our English language requirements.
Months of entry
Sensor and imaging systems (SIS) are central to modern life, and appear in fields as diverse as transport, biomedicine, agriculture and environmental monitoring.
Academically equivalent to a PhD, the EngD focuses on sensor research in a commercial environment, supplemented by Masters-level technical training and MBA-style business courses.
Projects all have an industry sponsor and you will spend up to 75% of your time working on-site with that company, under the direction of an industrial supervisor and an academic supervisor from the University.
