Engineering (by research) MSc
The Department has extremely good industry contacts and generates opportunities for short term industrial research projects, which can be linked to an MSc by Research in Engineering. These are 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 that leads to a learning contract with a research supervisor and often an industry contact; this sets the direction of your research project work and identifies your research training needs. You then select from the research training programmes offered by the Faculty's Graduate School to make sure that your skills are developed to meet your needs. Regular supervision and access to seminar groups, together with interim research reports, ensure good progress towards a final project dissertation.
The department has an annual MSc by Research scholarship scheme generously supported by the Sir John Fisher Foundation. This scholarship is open to students interested in nuclear or maritime engineering research.
