Engineering and Computing Sciences

A number of our students decide to use the MSc programme as a stepping-stone to further study at PhD level; topics for an MSc by research or PhD degree are decided upon by an academic member of staff; the expectation is for all researchers to produce original finds which can be published in leading international research journals.

Entry requirements

Good 2.1 (or higher) Honours degree in a relevant engineering discipline or computer science as appropriate; English language requirements include an IELTS of 6.5 or equivalent.

Assessment methods

PhDs are assessed by submission of a thesis followed by a viva which normally involves 1 (but occasionally 2) external examiners; MScs are assessed by a thesis with the option of a viva if deemed appropriate by the examiners.

Sponsorship information

2 or 3 full studentships (covering tuition fees and maintenance) available annually to UK students.
