Engineering

The Centre for Water Systems at the University of Exeter, in conjunction with a number of other universities, offers a professional industrial doctorate for those interested in urban water management, artificial intelligence, hydroinformatic tools or water research in general. An EngD is a four year research degree awarded for industrially relevant research, the degree provides a more vocationally oriented approach to obtaining a doctorate in engineering commensurate with that of a PhD. The programme will allow you to receive postgraduate-level technical and transferable skills training at five leading UK universities in the water research field. This university collaboration forms the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)-funded STREAM centre (the industrial doctorate centre for the water sector). The idea of STREAM is to enable researchers to develop new and innovative solutions to problems encountered by engineers, chemists and operators and this industry-driven approach to research results in a degree programme that is informed by the knowledge and skills needs of the water sector. The modules are designed to allow you to expand your basic knowledge of real-life problems and the programme gives the opportunity to gain the practical experience required by leading employers. You will have the opportunity to undertake study visits to leading overseas academic research groups and a yearly symposium enables all STREAM research engineers to present their work to sector stakeholders.

Entry requirements

The programme is open to: UK citizens; EU citizens who have studied or been employed in the UK for the past 3 years; overseas (non-UK, non-EU) citizens who have been employed in the UK for the past 3 years. Students should have at least a 2.1 Honours degree in engineering or science or have an appropriate MSc qualification. If English is not the 1st language, applicants may be required to take English language and other tests as decided by the centre prior to an offer being made.
