PhD in Mechanical Engineering Sciences

University of Surrey
Surrey, England, UK
PhDs in UKPhDs in England30-48mths full-time, 60-96mths part-time

Why Surrey?
If you are intrigued by aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, engineering materials, fluid mechanics, environmental flow and advanced vehicle development, our Mechanical Engineering Sciences research programmes will enable you to explore and learn more about the world around you. Our PhD and EPSRC CDT in MiNMaT EngD options, together with excellent facilities, will let you test the cutting-edge of science and make new discoveries.

The last decade or so has seen a significant and sustained investment in experimental facilities within the Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences and there are now facilities that represent a significant resource, not only nationally but also on the international stage. This enables world class research to be carried out in our chosen areas of endeavour. The Department hosts the Rolls Royce University Technology Centre in Thermo-Fluids Systems and the EPSRC’s Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Micro and NanoMaterials and Technologies.

Programme overview
The cohorts of doctoral students within the Department study for a PhD as full-time (with some part-time or collaborative) students or an EngD associated with the MiNMaT CDT, the balance being approximately 60:40.
