Course content

Our course will provide you with the technical, business and personal skills to help you fulfil your ambitions to become a senior manager of the future. Company sponsorship is a feature of the course and you will benefit from an industrial supervisor as well as a University supervisory team. The EngD combines doctoral-level research with taught modules and transferable management and leadership skills training. Research projects cover a broad range of topics and are based in our internationally renowned research groups. EngDs are available in the Integrated PhD themes previously mentioned, as well as in Transport and the Environment and a generic theme.

Year one is university-based, involving taught courses in technical areas related to your research and in professional and research skills. In years two to four you will carry out full-time applied research, with the opportunity to gain valuable experience of industry and commerce through periods of placement with the sponsor and further opportunities for management and leadership training.
