Program Description

PhD Manufacturing Engineering

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering

Manufacturing engineering involves the research and development of systems, processes, machines, tools, and equipment. Projects areas can cover many different fields within this discipline, for example, design, manufacturing, assembly, measurement, testing, and modeling.

This Ph.D. is based within the Faculty of Engineering. The research work within the faculty spans a range of applications including medicine, aerospace and automotive engineering, energy and the construction industry and it includes work from the most fundamental studies up to near-commercial investigations.

This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a master at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of three years but is also available over four years.

Facilities

The faculty has facilities for design, manufacturing, assembly, measurement, testing, and modeling as well as a proven track record in delivering high-quality research, leading to numerous patents and high impact peer-reviewed publications.

Within the faculty we offer exceptional facilities including a six-axis water jet cutting machine; precision die-sinking and wire-EDM machines; two Hermle 5 axis milling machines; 2KW, 400W and 100W fibre lasers; a Zeiss ultra precision coordinate measuring machine; an EnvisionTec Perfactory rapid prototyping machine; state-of-the-art car, motorbike and train simulators in the Human Factors Transport Simulation Laboratory and the Usability and Ergonomics Laboratory.

Research support

Support for Postgraduate Research students is coordinated through the Faculty Research Office. Each Ph.D. student will have a main academic supervisor and at least one additional supervisor. Regular formal supervision meetings, usually once a month, will take place with one or both of your supervisors.

We also provide academic postgraduate advisors and student PGR reps who are available if you have a query about procedures relating to the research study, are concerned about your progress or the facilities available. All Ph.D. students are enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering Training Programme, this is a structured programme of training drawing on formal external frameworks such as Joint Skills Statement, the Research Development Framework (RDF) and the Research Council guidance.

The Engineering and Science Research Council (EPSRC) has recognized our Faculty programme as a sector leading standard of postgraduate research development and training. The faculty has excellent links with industry and will ensure you develop transferable skills that will be of benefit in a variety of careers. You will also have access to the Graduate School’s Researcher Development Programme.
