Graduate Admissions

The MPhil is offered by the Department of Engineering as a full-time one-year course of research, introducing students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are:

  • to give students with relevant experience at first-degree level the opportunity to carry out focused research under close supervision in the discipline of Engineering; and
  • to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests.

This general MPhil is very flexible, and can be tailored to suit each student's particular interests, provided a suitable supervisor is available.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have:

  • a comprehensive understanding of techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature, applicable to their own research;
  • demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field;
  • shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies;
  • demonstrated some self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research.
