Engineering

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

Upon advancements in applied sciences and engineering studies, you are awarded a doctorate in Engineering. The education in Engineering PhD results into innovation, research and excellent training in the field. You can enroll for the course in many of the UK and US universities as well as other applicable institutions worldwide.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Doctors of Philosophy in Engineering in Bolton in United Kingdom. Materials Research and Innovation specialisms Doctor of Philosophy by Publication – PhD/MPhil full-time The innovative PhD by Publication will enable you to achieve the highest level of academic achievement in your subject area through the publication of your work. You will be a graduate with a strong background of study in the materials science, engineering and technology sectors and you may be working in these sectors. As a research student you will have access to the University’s resources and research expertise which will support your personal and professional development. The key component of your submission will be the publication of three papers in recognised journals or two papers and an international patent. Your PhD submission will be a thesis made up of three sections: an introduction, in which you will outline, in detail, the key themes of your proposal; your published material; conclusions and recommendations for future work. It is expected that your published work will receive critical recognition by peers and acknowledgement that it has made a significant contribution to learning, development or manufacture in its field. Subject overview IMRI is a multi-disciplinary centre designed to cultivate research and innovation activities in collaboration with industry and other academic institutions. The institute leads the UK, and is internationally known, for its strong applied materials science and engineering applications through the development of new, designer and novel smart and multifunctional materials (fibres, films, foams and particles) at nano and micro levels, as well as associated processing technologies. There are dedicated laboratories in the institute and state-of-the-art materials fabrication, characterisation and testing laboratories, complemented by a suite of materials modelling capabilities. IMRI also regularly carries out consultancy work for national as well as international clients. Staff also serve on technical advisory boards, international scientific panels and hold honorary appointments in overseas universities. IMRI is currently funded by the UK government (EPSRC and Technology Strategy Board), local industry consortia (DIUS), the EU (FP7) and international industry collaborations. Research topics Skills and expertise within IMRI include: medical and healthcare devices; intelligent materials (auxetic, piezoelectric, photovoltaic and electrorheological); smart microsystems (MEMS, self-powered sensors and actuators, surface acoustic waves, solar cells, nanomanipulators, wearables); technical textiles and fire retardancy. Available projects Research projects currently being carried out within IMRI include the following: - Piezoelectric, photovoltaic and solar cell systems for sustainable power regeneration; - Miniaturised biosensors and actuators for early diagnosis of pathogenic and chronic diseases (including, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and vulnerable heart plaque); - Wearable chemical-release self-powered and controlled devices for in vitro treatment (including, wound, antimicrobial, thermophysiological comfort and performance sports); - Functional fibre blends with fire retardant nano particles and encapsulants for protective textiles (including, fire fighting suits, bullet and knife proof police vests and composites); - Synthesis, applications and mechanisms of action of drugs and metallodrugs.

Engineering, Product Design and Textiles specialisms - PhD The doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree is aimed at students with a masters degree in a relevant field, in addition to a good honours degree (or significant work experience and professional qualifications), who wish to undertake a research-based doctorate. On the PhD programme you are expected to demonstrate the creation and interpretation of new knowledge through original research, or other advanced scholarship of a quality to satisfy peer review, which extends the forefront of the discipline and merits publication. You will also be expected to acquire an understanding of a substantial body of knowledge in your particular subject area in the field of engineering or design, as well as a general ability to conceptualise, design and implement a project for the generation of new knowledge. You will also gain a detailed understanding of applicable techniques for research and advanced academic enquiry in the engineering or design subject area. If you wish to develop research and analytical skills and conduct an original piece of research this course is appropriate for you. Your research may be applied research or action research, and may be based on your work in industry if you choose to study part-time. Careers & professional development Recent graduates from the PhD programme are following careers in academia and industry. On graduation you will become a member of the University's alumni association. You will be a lifelong member of the University's community, able to access careers information, the library, professional periodicals and journals, as well as a range of other facilities.
