Engineering (by Research) MSc
This programme is ideal for students with industrial experience who wish to work in a specific area, and prefer flexibility to the taught MSc programmes.
Flexibility is the key to this programme. It begins with an induction where you are allocated a supervisor and often an industry contact; this sets the direction of your research and identifies training needs. The Graduate School’s research training programme offers a range of sessions to meet those needs. Regular supervision and access to seminar groups, together with interim research reports, ensures good progress towards a final dissertation.
There is an MSc by Research scholarship scheme supported by the Sir John Fisher Foundation and is open to students interested in nuclear or maritime engineering research.
