Course content

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) combines research and industrial experience. It is equivalent to a PhD but with a wider, more practical focus and an emphasis on innovation. The flexibility of the EngD means you can start at whatever stage you are in your career, as the programme is responsive to your needs and that of the industry. The majority of the time is spent in the company. Some participants remain with their current employer, others will be associated with a company that is supporting the project.

Areas for PhD and EngD supervision include:

Additive Layer Manufacturing; Automation Systems; Business Transformation; Cyber Security; Biomedical Informatics, Imaging and Healthcare Technology; Digital Lifecycle Management; e-Business; Energy and Electrical Systems; Engineering Materials; and Manufacturing; Electrochemical Engineering; Experiential Engineering; Hybrid Vehicles; Industrial Materials Chemistry; Manufacturing Systems; Metrology; Nanocomposites; Product Evaluation Technologies; Quality and Reliability; Service Systems; Smart and Connected Vehicles; Steels Processing; Structural Materials; Supply Chain and Logistics; Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing; Visualisation.
