Course content

The MPhil and PhD degree programmes enables students to study a chosen area of research with leading researchers in the Department.

The MPhil degree is a 2 year full-time or 4 year part-time programme. The PhD degree is a 3 year full-time or 6 year part-time programme.

PhD students are required to submit a preliminary report on their research at the end of their first year and undergo an oral examination to confirm their aptitude to continue their PhD study. In addition, PhD students are required to give a 3 minute presentation in their first year, submit a poster in their second year and present a seminar on their research work to the Department during their third.

The overall intention is to give research students the opportunity to develop both oral and written communications skills which are essential in a modern engineering environment.
